1 Weary and worn in the battle of life,
Driven and beaten by sorrow and strife;
Turn to your Saviour your burden to share;
Pause at His feet for a moment of prayer.

Refrain:
Pause at His feet for a moment of prayer;
Honor the dear blessed name that we bear
Pause in your hurry, worry and care,
Pause at His feet for a moment of prayer.

2 Pray for His strength lest you fall by the way
Plead for His grace to sustain you today;
Safely through evil His armor to wear
Pause at His feet for a moment of prayer. [Refrain]

3 Pause to partake of the sweet living bread
Drink of His life at the great fountain head;
Christ will restore you from sin and despair,
Pause at His feet for a moment of prayer. [Refrain]
