Full Text

1 Jesus went upon the mountain that He might commune with God,
He prayed, He prayed,
On the hills of old Judea which my blessed Savior trod,
He prayed, He prayed.

Refrain:
He prayed, He prayed;
Jesus prayed unto the Father ev’ry day,
From the manger to the cross;
Not a moment’s time was lost,
Jesus prayed onto the Father all the way.

2 Out upon the rolling waters when the storm His vessel tossed,
He prayed, He prayed;
Then the winds and waves obeyed Him and He safely went across,
He prayed, He prayed. [Refrain]

3 All alone while in the garden where He sweat great drops as blood,
He prayed, He prayed;
Not my will but Thine be done, my Father, was His pray’r to God,
He prayed, He prayed. [Refrain]

4 When upon the cross of Calv’ry in His agony and pain,
He prayed, He prayed;
That the Father might forgive them whom the Son of God had slain,
He prayed, He prayed. [Refrain]

E. M. Bartlett was born December 24, 1883 in Waynesville, Missouri. His family later moved to Sebastian County, Arkansas. Bartlett received training as a music teacher and was a leader in developing Southern gospel music. He was employed by Central Music Company, a publisher of shape note singing books based in Hartford, which was owned by David Moore and Will H. Ramsey. Bartlett persuaded Moore and John A. McClung to partner with him to form Hartford Music Company. In 1921, Bartlett established the Hartford Music Institute, a shape note school. He provided opportunities for many songwriters and musicians in gospel music, including Albert E. Brumley. In 1939 he suffered a stroke and afterwards wrote "Victory in Jesus."
