Malcolm Brooks finds that St. John the Divine is free for prayer.
 
At the doors of the cathedral
St. John the Divine.
Was a guard he was standing
in front of the line.
 
“I just came to pray, came to pray”
 
Well the guard wouldn’t let me
Go into the nave
I saw the ticket counter
Maybe 10 feet away
 
“I just came to pray, came to pray”

I walked to the counter
And the woman said to me
10 dollars admission
And children are free
 
“I just came to pray, came to pray”
 
Then I said I came to pray
She smiled so sweet
Then just like the children
You go in free
 
“I just came to pray, came to pray”
“I just came to pray, came to pray”
