Pray, Always Pray

Verse 1:
Pray, always pray; the Holy Spirit pleads
Within thee all thy daily, hourly needs.

Verse 2:
Pray, always pray; beneath sin’s heaviest load
Prayer sees the blood from Jesus’ side that flow’d.

Verse 3:
Pray, always pray; though weary, faint and lone,
Prayer nestles by the Father’s sheltering throne.

Verse 4:
Pray, always pray; if joys thy pathway throng,
Prayer strikes the harp, and sings the angel’s song.

Verse 5:
Pray, always pray; if loved ones pass the veil,
Prayer drinks with them of springs that cannot fail.

Verse 6:
All earthly things with earth shall fade away;
Prayer grasps eternity; pray, always pray.

Rev. E.H. Bickersteth, M.A.
