Bill Kenny's unsullied, poignant tenor and the sonorous recitatives of bass Hoppy Jones were winning trademarks of the Ink Spots at their peak.

"My Prayer" was an elegant favorite in 1939 and one of the first songs broadcast over early American television...featured at the 1939 World's Fair.

Written by George Boulanger and James Kennedy:

MY PRAYER

My prayer is to linger with you
At the end of the day
In a dream that's devine
My prayer is a rapture in blue
With a world far away
And your lips close to mine

Tonight while our hearts are aglow
Oh tell me the words that I'm longing to know
My prayer and the answer you give
May they still be the same
For as long as we live
That you'll always be there
At the end of my prayer


My prayer is to linger with you
At the end of each day
In a dream that's devine
My prayer is a rapture in blue
With a world far away
And your lips close to mine

Tonight while our hearts are aglow
Oh tell me the words that I'm longing to know
My prayer and the answer you give
May they still be the same
For as long as we live
That you'll always be there
At the end of my prayer
