143. Keep Your Windows Open

1. Would you fear to have your windows open
Three times each day,
If sinners saw that you were kneeling
Three times to pray?

Chorus:
Keep your windows open to'ard Jerusalem,
Keep your windows open to'ard Jerusalem;
Keep your windows open to'ard Jerusalem,
And always pray.

2. Would you offer up a bold petition
If well you knew
That awful den of roaring lions
Awaited you? [Chorus]

3. Would you kneel believing ev'ry promise
The Lord has giv'n?
Or thinking silent prayer sufficient
For you and heav'n? [Chorus]

4. The lesson taught is not to offer
A world wide prayer:
'Tis duty first, and then the promise
Of heav'nly care. [Chorus]

5. Then kneel at morning, noon, and evning,
Nor ever fear
That others who are unbelieving
Your prayer may hear. [Chorus]
