Representative Text

1 When the early morn is breaking
I will seek the Mount of Prayer;
‘Tis a precious time of waiting,
For my soul is strengthened there.

Refrain:
To the Mount I’ll go,
To the Mount I’ll go,
When the hosts of sin surround me,
To the Mount of Prayer I’ll go.

2 When the clouds of trial gather,
Overcasting all the sky,
Driving from my heart the sunshine,
To the Mount of Pray’r I’ll fly. [Refrain]

3 When the hosts of sin endeavor
Thus to drive me from his feet,
To the Mount of Prayer I’ll hasten,
‘Tis an only safe retreat. [Refrain]

4 When the darkness gathers round me,
At the closing of the day,
From the Mount of Prayer above me
Comes a cheering, helping ray. [Refrain]
