Pray, always pray; the Holy Spirit pleads
Within thee all thy daily, hourly needs.
Pray, always pray; beneath sin’s heaviest load
Prayer sees the blood from Jesus’ side that flow’d.
Pray, always pray; though weary, faint and lone,
Prayer nestles by the Father’s sheltering throne.
Pray, always pray; if joys thy pathway throng,
Prayer strikes the harp, and sings the angel’s song.
Pray, always pray; if loved ones pass the veil,
Prayer drinks with them of springs that cannot fail.
All earthly things with earth shall fade away;
Prayer grasps eternity; pray, always pray.
Rev. E.H. Bickersteth, M.A.
