I can't remember all the words to this song:

If you have a problem, I'd sure like to help
There's one certain way I can show you I care
Though I could offer opinions that might prove untrue
For the only sure answer, here's what I'll do

I will talk to my Father for you
And if I know my Father, here's what He'll do
He will lay at your feet
What His will pursues
It's no bother for my Father
He'll do it for you

In Christ,

Here is the song...

If you've got a problem i'd sure like to share
There's one special wasy I can show you I care.
I can offer opinons that might prove untrue
For the only sure answer, here's what i'll do

I will talk to my father for you.
And if I know my father, here's what he'll do.
He will lay at your feet all the things you pursue.
It's no bother for my father
will do it for you.

I have never prayed fire down from the sky
But God saw each tear that ever fell from these eye's
So if you've got a mountain a rope you can't climb
I'll take your burdens and i'll make them mine.

I WILL TALK TO MY FATHER FOR YOU


If you’ve got a problem, I’d sure like to share
There’s one special way I can show you I care
I could offer opinions that might prove untrue
For the only sure answer, here’s what I’ll do.

Chorus:
I will talk to my Father for you
And if I know my Father here’s what He’ll do
He will lay at your feet, all the things you pursue
It’s no bother, for my Father will do it for you.


I have never prayed fire down from the sky
But God saw each tear that ever fell from these eyes
So if you’ve got a mountain, alone you can’t climb
Then I’ll take your burden, and I’ll make them mine..Cause...

Chorus

Chorus 2
Let me talk to my Father for you
And if I know my Father, here’s what He’ll do

It’s no bother for my Father will do it for you

Try Musicnotes.com  I have gotten sheet music for several songs there and the price is quite reasonable complete with authority to use the song.

"Lay at your feet all the things you pursue." (passage from the song, "I Will Tell My Father" )  What does this psssage mean?

Please, some Christian who knows what this means, tell me. I really like the song, just don't know what it means.

Thanks and may God bless you.

Hi Ann,

Sorry about that, I went ahead and fixed all the weird faces. It happens every now and again on certain browsers, I'm not exactly sure why...

To answer your question, the line "He will lay at your feet all the things you pursue" certainly is a little bit confusing, and there's no direct Biblical reference I can find that explains what it means. From the context of the hymn, here's my guess:

- The main text of the hymn looks like it's inspired by John 14:16, where Jesus comforts the disciples by telling them that he will "pray the Father" on their behalf, and that He would send a Helper (the Holy Spirit).

- The phrase "lay at your feet" can be confusing because generally refers to making an offering or showing submission (Ruth 3:8, Matthew 15:30), but in this context it seems to refer to conquering or overcoming something or someone (Romans 16:20, 1 Corinthians 15:27, Ephesians 1:22).

- "All the things you pursue" I'm guessing refers to the anxieties of life that weigh us down and trouble us. 

So from the context of the hymn, I'm guessing it means that this song is from a person who'll pray to God on behalf of his/her friend, knowing that He has the ability to help whatever is causing trouble in his/her life.

Hope this makes sense. Thanks, and God bless!

to Ann,
I change the lyrics from 'He will lay at your feet all the things you pursue' to 'He will lay at your feet all the things good for you'. I don't agree with the original line. I would sure hope God would not give me all the things I've pursued in my life. He surely knows what is good for me better than I do & I trust Him.

I do have to say in the song's favor that it touched me the first time I heard it sung by the Nelons at a Gospel Quartet convention (that I didn't win the solo competition for). Just the thought that Jesus was praying to the Father in my behalf hit me here. He understood my sadness because He suffered more than we will ever suffer. He intercedes for us continually as we are BEING SAVED. Our final salvation will be when we die or Christ comes in the rapture(should that happen before we die - hope so).

I am also encouraged by this song to think that one of the greatest things we can do for someone who is facing a trial is to say 'I'm praying for you" and do it in their hearing. So comforting - especially if it comes from someone who has been through what you've been through.

Hope this helps. I still sing this song.
