At the place of prayer

Full Text

1 When your cross seems heavy, and the pathway steep,
When the night grows dreary, and the shadows deep,
There's a refuge open, blessed haven fair--
There's a blessing waiting at the place of Prayer!

Chorus:
There's a blessing waiting at the place of Prayer!
There is balm for sorrow, there is rest from care;
There is perfect peace and joy beyond compare,
There's a blessing waiting at the place of Prayer!

2 When the old-time power seems forever gone,
When the world forgets you as it rushes on;
When you fast are sinking into deep despair--
There's a blessing waiting at the place of Prayer! [Chorus]

3 Jesus waits to take you in His arms of love
From the lonely valley to the heights above;
You will find sweet comfort in His presence there--
There's a blessing waiting at the place of Prayer! [Chorus]
