Prayer Is The Soul’s Sincere Desire,
Uttered Or Unexpressed;
The Motion Of A Hidden Fire,
That Trembles In The Breast.

Prayer Is The Burden Of A Sigh,
The Falling Of A Tear;
The Upward Glancing Of An Eye,
When None But God Is Near.

Prayer Is The Simplest Form Of Speech
That Infant Lips Can Try;
Prayer The Sublimest Strains That Reach
The Majesty On High.

Prayer Is The Contrite Sinner’s Voice,
Returning From His Ways;
While Angels In Their Songs Rejoice,
And Cry, “Behold He Prays!”

Prayer Is The Christian’s Vital Breath,
The Christian’s Native Air;
His Watchword At The Gates Of Death;
He Enters Heaven With Prayer.

The Saints In Prayer Appear As One,
In Word, And Deed, And Mind;
While With The Father And The Son
Sweet Fellowship They Find.

Nor Prayer Is Made On Earth Alone;
The Holy Spirit Pleads:
And Jesus, On The Eternal Throne,
For Sinners Intercedes.

O Thou By Whom We Come To God,
The Life, The Truth, The Way!
The Path Of Prayer Thyself Hast Trod:
Lord! Teach Us How To Pray.
