Like a Prayer - Madonna Lyrics

Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home

Chorus:
When you call my name it's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there

I hear your voice, it's like an angel singing
I have no choice, I hear your voice
Feels like flying
I close my eyes, Oh God I think I'm falling
Out of the sky, I close my eyes
Heaven help me

Chorus:
When you call my name it's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there

Like a child you whisper softly to me
You're in control just like a child
Now I'm dancing
It's like a dream, no end and no beginning
You're here with me, it's like a dream
Let the choir sing

Chorus:
When you call my name it's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there

Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home

Just like a prayer, your voice can take me there
Just like a muse to me, you are a mystery
Just like a dream, you are not what you seem
Just like a prayer, no choice
your voice can take me there

Just like a prayer, I'll take you there
It's like a dream to me

  • Best Jeff Porcaro groove

    I didn't even know that Jeff Porcaro played the drums on this song by Madonna.I heard it on the radio last night and right then and there came that unmistakeable opening. It seems that he lends his own signature to whatever song that needs a strong drum pattern. I could think of several such as Moodido the Match. Angel don't cry. Rosanna. Africa and many many more .He is greatly missed . Signed lover of drumming 2.018

    one of my favorite Madonna videos. It was very well done. I remember when it first came out what a stink people made about it but I thought it was great. I can't remember the name of the lead choir singer. She has a fantastic voice and I have seen her somewhere else. Can anybody help me out here?
  • One of the Best!

    This is one of Madonna's greatest songs of all time and an incredible video to go with it! I also love Madonna's controversial exploration of the religious symbolism in this song/music video.

    Good video!! I wish people wouldn't be so prejudiced against it. It's the artistic feeling of the artist so just deal with it!
  • Loved this in college when it first came out

    Then I got into hair metal and totally forgot all about Madonna except for "Like a Virgin", and that only b/c of Weird Al doing "Like a Surgeon". Browsing iTunes I came across this and found I still love the song and the video concept, and I think several decades of life have let me see deeper into some of the themes than I used to. Well worth getting, even for the casual Madonna fan like me. And boy, was she beautiful in those days! She looks fantastic in this video.
  • HORRIBLE
