Representative Text

1 When the clouds of doubt appear,
When your faith would turn to fear,
Go to God in earnest prayer,
He will ev’ry burden share.

Pray, pray, pray,
When the day is sad and dreary,
Pray, pray, pray,
When the night is dark and weary;
God will hear your faintest cry,
You will find Him ever nigh,
If you pray, pray, pray,
If you pray, pray, pray.

2 Tho’ discouraged by the way,
Disappointments mar each day,
Ev’ry challenge prayer will meet,
Change the bitter into sweet. [Refrain]

3 When the tempter seeks to win,
Beckons with the wiles of sin,
Prayer will be a refuge sure,
Give you strength then to endure. [Refrain]

4 Pray, believing God will hear,
Know that He is ever near;
Trust the promise of His Word,
Ever lean upon the Lord. [Refrain]

After attending a revival meeting by Reuben Torrey and Charles M. Alexander, Harkness became Alexander’s pianist. He came to Christ shortly thereafter (on a bicycle, he said), and made several round the world tours with Torrey and Alexander. Harkness was especially well known for his program The Music of the Cross, and as the author of correspondence courses in hymn playing. He wrote over 2,000 hymns and Gospel songs in his lifetime.
