ARE THE PRAYERS OF THE SAINTS
Like sweet smelling incense,

Like sweet smelling incense to Your heart,
To Your heart?

Let these prayers of the saints
Be sweet smelling incense,
Let these prayers of the saints
Be sweet smelling incense to Your heart.

Are the songs of the saints
Like sweet smelling incense,
Are the songs of the saints
Like sweet smelling incense to Your heart,
To your heart?
(Repeat)

Let these songs of the saints
Be sweet smelling incense,
Let these songs of the saints
Be sweet smelling incense to Your heart.
