Daniel at Prayer
The Bible Revival

In your sec­ret heart, my bro­ther,
Was the day with God be­gun?
Did you ask His guid­ance all along the way?
Did you give into His keep­ing
Hours of joy and hours of weep­ing?
When the world has called you from Him, did you pray?


Are your win­dows op­en, bro­ther,
Are they open t’ward Je­ru­sa­lem?
Have you found the peace the world takes not away?

Has the noon­tide found you, bro­ther,
With your face turned t’ward the east?
Is your trea­sure hid where thieves can ne­ver steal?
Have men from your lips been learn­ing
Of the Sav­ior’s ten­der yearn­ing?
Have you told them of His love that all may feel?


When the ev­en­ing comes, my bro­ther,
Will it bring you glad­ly home?
Will the work that He has giv­en you be done?
Will the Mas­ter’s voice at ev­en
Bid you an­chor in His Hea­ven?
Will it pro­fit, tho’ the world you may have won?
