Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

923. The Blessing of Prayer

1 There’s stealing o’er my peaceful, trusting soul
A power that is most divinely sweet,
As all my burdens on the Lord I roll,
And meekly linger at His blessed feet.

Refrain:
Then let us ever humbly watch and pray,
Seek oft in tears the Savior’s lovely face;
Come boldly with thy needs for every day,
Blest mercy’s waiting at the throne of grace.

2 I kneel in sweet submission while my prayer
Ascends on wings of faith to Father’s throne;
He listens while my hopeful spirit there
Its faltering petitions maketh known. [Refrain]

3 What bliss to dwell where heaven’s blessings fall,
Until my soul, with mercy’s drops bedewed
Responds in answer to my Father’s call,
With words of thankfulness and gratitude. [Refrain]

4 As angels came to dark Gethsemane
To bless the Savior as He there did bow
Beneath the shadows dense, on bended knee;
O Father, bless my waiting spirit now! [Refrain]
