Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more.

The Lord who recommendeth prayer

The Lord who recommendeth prayer

Full Text

1 The Lord who recommendeth pray'r,
Will always hear us when we pray;
His eyes behold us ev'ry where,
And knows all we do think or say.

2 Ask ye by faith, the Lord will give,
For this ye have the Saviour's word;
Seek ye the Lord, your souls shall live,
And taste the goodness of your Lord.

3 Seek ye by pray'r, and ye shall find
Access unto the throne of grace;
Ye shall partake the Saviour's mind,
Who is your life and righteousness.

4 With fervent pray'r knock at the gate,
Which opens to eternal life!
And persevere in ev'ry fate,
Through oppositions, war and strife.

5 Your fervent pray'rs are not in vain,
They surely will at last prevail;
Should God awhile from you refrain,
Yet his sure word shall never fail.

6 To pray for that which we do need,
And ask alone for Jesus' sake;
We shall for evermore succeed,
And all we need we shall partake.
