9. 'Tis Sweet to Pray

1 To God, in realms above,
‘Tis sweet to pray;
To God, so rich in love,
‘Tis sweet to pray.
I call upon His name;
I do not call in vain;
Oh, it is mine to say,
‘Tis sweet to pray,
Sweet to pray!

2 As He is always near,
‘Tis sweet to pray;
As He will help to cheer,
‘Tis sweet to pray.
I know He cares for me;
I know His love so free;
Oh, it is mine to say,
‘Tis sweet to pray,
Sweet to pray!

3 At morning’s early light
‘Tis sweet to pray;
Then at the coming night
‘Tis sweet to pray.
I knock and I believe;
I ask and I receive;
Oh, it is mine to say,
‘Tis sweet to pray,
Sweet to pray!
