Come to the Morning Prayer,
Come let us kneel and pray;
Prayer is the Christian pilgrim's staff
To walk with God all day.
At noon, beneath the Rock
Of Ages, rest and pray;
Sweet is that shadow from the heat,
When the sun smites by day.
At eve, shut to the door,
Round the home-altar pray,
And finding there "the House of God,"
At "heaven's gate" close the day.
When midnight seals our eyes,
Let each in spirit say,
"I sleep, but my heart waketh, Lord,
With Thee to watch and pray."
Sacred Poems and Hymns, 1854
