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.

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]
