Representative Text

1 Brothers, when the way is lonely,
And the sky is overcast
With dark shadows that betoken
Sorrow’s wintry blast—
Brothers, then, O keep on praying;
Keep on praying all the day;
All is safe in Christ relying;
O brothers, only pray.

Keep on praying, ever praying,
When the sky is overcast;
Christ will keep us all from straying;
O brothers, watch and pray.

2 Brothers, when the sunshine cometh,
And the shadows disappear;
When the joys of faith triumphant
Conquer all our fear—
Brothers, still we’ll keep on praying;
Keep on praying all the day;
It will make the sunshine brighter;
O brothers, watch and pray. [Refrain]

3 Brothers, while we journey onward,
Through life’s brief and changeful day,
Though its pleasures or its sorrows
Crown our pilgrim way—
Brothers, we will keep on praying;
Keep on praying as we go;
Soon our weary, fainting spirits
The joys of Heav’n shall know. [Refrain]
