1 My feet often times grow weary
While walking life’s toilsome way,
And then, to find strength and comfort,
I go and in secret I pray.

Refrain:
I enter and close the door;
Jesus and I talk it o’er;
He comforts, He strengthens, He cheers me,
And I am discouraged no more.

2 My hands often tire with toiling,
And long seems the passing day,
And then, lest I faint and falter,
I go and in secret I pray. [Refrain]

3 My heart is at times discouraged
When trials beset my way,
And then, my weak faith to strengthen,
I go and in secret I pray. [Refrain]

4 Temptation and sin assail me,
To lure me from Christ away,
You wonder how I resist them,
I go and in secret I pray. [Refrain]

5 Whenever the light burns dimly,
Or darkness obscures my way,
I haste into Jesus presence,
And kneeling there humbly I pray. [Refrain]
