Lyrics

Rachel:
Life is a mystery
Everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home...

Rachel with Finn and New Directions:
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

Finn:
I hear your voice
It's like an angel sighing

Kurt:
I have no choice, I hear your voice
Feels like flying

Mercedes:
I close my eyes
Oh God I think I'm falling
Out of the sky, I close my eyes
Heaven help me

Rachel with Finn and New Directions:
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

Finn:
I'm like a child
You whisper softly to me

Rachel:
You're in control, just like a child
Now I'm dancing

Jesse:
It's like a dream
No end and no beginning
You're here with me, it's like a dream

Mercedes:
Let the choir sing,
Oohhhhh

Rachel with Finn and New Directions and The Choir:
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
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

Ohh, Ohhh
Ohh, Ohhh

New Directions and The Choir:
Life is a mystery (The Choir: Ohh, ohhh), everyone must stand alone (The Choir: Ohh, ohhh)

Just like a prayer (The Choir: Ohh, ohhh), your voice can take me there (The Choir: Ohh, ohhh)
Just like a muse to me (The Choir: Ohh, ohhh), you are a mystery (The Choir: Ohh, ohhh)
Just like a dream (The Choir: Ohh, ohhh), you are not what you seem
(Mercedes: Oh!) Just like a prayer

Jesse and Rachel with New Directions and The Choir:
No choice your voice can take me there

The Choir and New Directions:
Just like a prayer, I'll take you there (Mercedes and Rachel: I'll take you there!)
It's like a dream to me (Mercedes: Ohh)
Just like a prayer, I'll take you there (Mercedes: I'll take you there!)
It's like a dream to me (Mercedes: Just like a dream to me)
Just like a prayer, I'll take you there (Mercedes: Ohh!)
