Representative Text

1 Are clouds of deep darkness above thee?
Pray through, pray through;
Do trials and sorrows distress thee?
Pray through, pray through.

Refrain:
Pray through, pray through,
The skies are beginning to clear.
Pray through, pray through,
The end of the struggle draws near.

2 Why fear when temptations distress thee?
Pray through, pray through;
When terrors of night are about thee;
Pray through, pray through. [Refrain]

3 No evil shall harm or beset thee;
Pray through, pray through;
Tho’ snares are outspread to entrap thee;
Pray through, pray through. [Refrain]

4 Most surely the Lord will defend thee;
Pray through, pray through;
His promise can never once fail thee;
Pray through, pray through. [Refrain]
