I take it in prayer

Representative Text

1 When dark, gloomy shadows creep over my soul,
I take it in prayer to my Savior;
When ’round me in fury the wild billows roll,
I take it in prayer to my Savior.

Refrain:
Oh, what a privilege divine
To kneel at the Savior’s feet,
To carry each sorrow, hope and fear
To the life-giving mercy seat.

2 When floods of temptation my soul would o’erflow,
I take it in prayer to my Savior;
When sore tribulations my faith would o’erthrow,
I take it in prayer to my Savior. [Refrain]

3 When enemies injure, or friends me forsake,
I take it in prayer to my Savior;
When hopes all are blasted, when cherished plans break,
I take it in prayer to my Savior. [Refrain]

4 I long ev’ry day to draw nearer His throne;
I take it in prayer to my Savior;
My peace and content in His presence alone,
I take it in prayer to my Savior. [Refrain]
