Lyrics

Pray, pray, when things go wrong,
And gloomy fears around you throng;
The lov­ing God your voice will hear,
Look up to Him, He’s al­ways near.

Refrain

Pray, pray though your eyes grow dim,
Go with your trou­bles straight to Him;
Pray, pray, for God un­der­stands;
Have faith, leav­ing all in His dear hands.

Pray, pray, be calm and still,
Whatever comes must be His will;
His pro­mis­es like buds un­fold,
Naught that is good will He with­hold.

Refrain

Pray, pray till faith grows strong,
And in your heart rings Hea­ven’s song;
Till self shall die in pure de­sire,
And ev­ery thought to Him as­pire.
