1 Would you be strong in the Lord alway?
Would you have vict’ry from day to day?
Would you abide in the narrow way?
Give more time to prayer!

Refrain:
pray, my brother, pray
More and more each passing day.
Would you the fullness of blessing share?
Give more time to prayer!

2 Pray to the Lord as the moments fly,
Pray to the Lord as the hours go by;
Pray to the Father who lives on high;
Give more time to prayer! [Refrain]

3 Would you be made in your hope secure?
Would you alway in the faith endure?
Would you be kept from the evil pure?
Give more time to prayer! [Refrain]

4 Would you inherit a mansion grand?
Would you make sure of the better land?
Take firmer hold of the Master’s hand.
Give more time to prayer! [Refrain]
