1 There is in prayer a wondrous pow’r,
Inspired of God alone,
That brings to us “The Prince of Peace,”
And seals our hearts His own.

The pow’r of prayer can never fail,
O’er sin and death it will prevail;
The pow’r of prayer, when time is past,
Will lead us home at last.

2 There is in prayer a mighty pow’r,
That draws our souls above,
And makes us one in Christ the Lord,
Whom, though unseen, we love. [Refrain]

3 There is in prayer a trusting pow’r,
That keeps us day by day;
That clings to Him, our Hope, our All,
To Him, the Truth, the Way. [Refrain]

4 Whate’er of joy our cup may fill,
Whate’er of pain we bear,
‘Tis prayer, still prayer, the Lord commands;
Let every breath be prayer. [Refrain]
