The Lord Who Recommendeth Prayer

The Lord who recommendeth pray’r,
Will always hear us when we pray;
His eyes behold us ev’ry where,
And knows all we do think or say.

Ask ye by faith, the Lord will give,
For this ye have the Saviour’s word;
Seek ye the Lord, your souls shall live,
And taste the goodness of your Lord.

Seek ye by pray’r, and ye shall find
Access unto the throne of grace;
Ye shall partake the Saviour’s mind,
Who is your life and righteousness.

With fervent pray’r knock at the gate,
Which opens to eternal life!
And persevere in ev’ry fate,
Through oppositions, war and strife.

Your fervent pray’rs are not in vain,
They surely will at last prevail;
Should God awhile from you refrain,
Yet his sure word shall never fail.

To pray for that which we do need,
And ask alone for Jesus’ sake;
We shall for evermore succeed,
And all we need we shall partake.
