So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today?

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]
