O, not alone on the mount of prayer
Must the Christian serve his God;
But the burden of daily life must bear,
And tread where his Saviour trod.
Yet with him through every changing scene
Doth the spirit of prayer abide;
When earth is lovely, and heaven serene,
That spirit his course shall guide.
And when the storm rages, and woe and wrath
Would an earth-born courage quell,
He knows that his God is around his path,
And ordereth all things well.
