Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

To pray and nevermore to cease

To pray and nevermore to cease

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 To pray and never more to cease,
Is what our case requires;
Our souls enjoy a constant peace
While we feel such desires.

2 By faithful pray'r we may draw near
To God, who bids us pray;
We need not doubt, we need not fear,
That we be turn'd away.

3 By pray'r we have an intercourse,
To God, who reigns above;
Our fervent pray'rs will have such force
To gain both faith and love.

4 Our wants before the Lord are laid,
We plead the Saviour's blood;
Who pray'd for us, and when he pray'd,
His pray'rs were heart with God.

5 Tho' all our wants to him are known,
And all our faults he sees;
But yet we must confess and own
Them, humbly on our knees.

6 This is what God requires of us,
Whilst we live here below,
To follow his directions thus:
As well as we can do.
