VERSE
One of our planes was missing,
Two hours overdue.
One of our planes was missing,
With all its gallant crew.
The radio sets were humming,
They waited for a word;
Then a voice broke thru the humming
And this is what they heard:
CHORUS
"Comin' In On A Wing And A Pray'r
Comin' In On A Wing And A Pray'r
Tho' there's one motor gone,
We can still carry on,
Comin' In On A Wing And A Pray'r.
What a show
What a fight
Yes, we really hit our target tonight.
How we sing as we limp thru the air
Look below, there's our field over there
Wtih our full crew aboard
And our trust in the Lord
We're Comin' In On A Wing And A Pray'r."
