Representative Text

1 Keep the pray’r line clear to the throne of grace,
Guard it well with zealous care;
‘Tis a priceless gift from the King above,
Ev’ry one who will may share.

Refrain:
Keep the pray’r line clear, keep it clear,
Use it well from day to day;
Keep the pray’r line clear to the throne of grace,
Talk with Him along the way.

2 Keep the pray’r line clear, thro’ the long, long years,
It will render service true;
If your Christian life would be full of pow’r,
Learn what God would have you do. [Refrain]

3 Keep the pray’r line clear, not for self alone,
But for those who need your care;
Throw aside each hindering thing of earth,
You will find a blessing there. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
