Representative Text

1 Pray without ceasing, wait on the Lord,
Pleading the promise found in His Word,
You will be sure to receive a reward,—
Pray without ceasing, pray.

Refrain:
Pray without ceasing, God will reply,
If in the name of Christ you apply,
For He has promised to hear your cry,—
Pray without ceasing, pray, ever pray.

2 Pray when you’re tempted, pray when you’re tried,
Nothing you ask will e’er be denied,
If in the Master’s will you abide,—
Pray without ceasing, pray. [Refrain]

3 Pray in the sunshine, pray in the night,
Pray when your hopes have taken their flight,
Call on the Lord and all will be right,—
Pray without ceasing, pray. [Refrain]

4 Prayer is the key more precious than gold,
Op’ning the door to treasures untold,
Riches of grace unbounded unfold,
If you will ever pray. [Refrain]
