Pray Without Ceasing.
93

Go when the morning shineth,

Go when the noon is bright,

Go when the eve declineth,

Go in the hush of night;

Go with pure mind and feeling,

Put earthly thoughts away,

And, in God’s presence kneeling,

Do thou in secret pray.

Remember all who love thee,

All who are loved by thee;

Pray, too, for those who hate thee,

If any such there be;

Then for thyself, in meekness,

A blessing humbly claim,

And blend with each petition

Thy great Redeemer’s name.

Or, if ’tis e’er denied thee

In solitude to pray,

Should holy thoughts come o’er thee

When friends are round thy way,

E’en then, the silent breathing

Thy spirit lifts above

Will reach His throne of glory,

Where dwells eternal love.

O, not a joy or blessing

With this can we compare,—

The grace our Father gives us

To pour our souls in prayer:

Whene’er thou pin’st in sadness,

On Him who saveth, call!

Remember, in thy gladness,

His love who gave thee all.
