Representative Text

1 When the heart is distress’d,
Fill’d with pain and unrest,
There’s a wonderful blessing in prayer;
For the Savior is near,
When we cry, He will hear
And will carry our burdens and care.

Refrain:
Oh, then pray, always pray,
As you go on your way!
In communion with heaven abide,
That your faith may endure,
And your peace be secure,
Unmolested, whatever betide.

2 When temptation assails
And your strength almost fails,
There’s a wonderful blessing in prayer;
If you call on His name,
He will help you to claim
That great pow’r which you need ev’rywhere. [Refrain]

3 When the moments are bright,
Flowing on with delight,
There’s a wonderful blessing in prayer;
For the Master bestows
Joy, the world never knows,
When we ask Him our gladness to share. [Refrain]

4 Then whatever you need
And the promise you plead,
There’s a wonderful blessing in prayer;
For none ever were known,
Who in faith sought the throne,
To return empty-handed from there. [Refrain]
