Representative Text

1 Does the world look dark and dreary?
Are your trials more and more?
Have your feet grown tired and weary?
Does the tempest round you roar?

Refrain:
Keep on praying, keep on praying,
Tho’ the storm be raging wild;
Soon you’ll hear a sweet voice saying:
“Peace to you, my troubled child.”

2 Do you sometimes think, most sadly,
There is none your grief to share?
Just remember, Jesus, gladly,
Every burden waits to bear. [Refrain]

3 Pray’r will lift you nearer heave,
Into sunshine, pure and sweet;
Darkest clouds will soon be riven,
Soon be underneath your feet. [Refrain]

4 God is wise, and, if delaying
Answer to your pray’r for aid,
You must trust him; keep on praying,
Help will come; be not dismayed. [Refrain]
