Thy Saviour is Praying for Thee

Representative Text

1. O thought full of sweetness to those that believe,
Though comforts of earth may depart or deceive;
Amid desolation there's somewhere to flee,
Remember, thy Saviour is praying for thee.

Refrain:
For thee, he is praying for thee,
Thy Saviour is praying for thee,
In affliction, temptation, in sorrow, or fear,
(Close with 4th line of 1st verse.)

2. O'er ev'ry temptation thy triumph is sure,
His grace he has promis'd to help thee endure;
Though strong is thy fetters, thou yet shall be free,
Through Jesus, thy Saviour, who prayeth for thee.

3. In pain and in sickness he stands by thy bed,
And speaks of the suff'rings he bore in thy stead;
That night in the garden, that day on the tree,
Remember, thy Saviour is praying for thee. [Refrain]

4. When suns shall have vanished, no longer to shine,
Assurance of glory, believer, is thine;
When earth has departed, how blissful to see
The face of thy Saviour, who prayeth for thee. [Refrain]
