HYMN 412

H.C. 273 D. 7s 6s (FE 434)
"Pray without ceasing" -  1Tess. 5:17

1.  GO when the moming shineth

     Go, when the noon is bright 

     Go, when the eve declineth 

     Go, in the hush of night

     Go with pure mind and feeling 

     Fling earthly cares away

     And in thy chamber kneeling 

     Do thou in secret pray.

2.  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 link with each petition 

     Thy great Redemeer's name.

3.  Or if ‘tis here denied thee

     In solitude to pray

     Should holy thoughts come o'er thee 

     When friends are round thy way 

     When then silent pleading

     Of thy heart raised above

     Will reach His throne of glory 

     Who's mercy, truth, and love.

4.  Oh, not a joy or blessing

     With this can we compare

     The pow‘r that He has giv‘n us

     To pour our souls in pray‘r 

     Where‘er thou pin'st in sadness 

     Before His footstool fall 

     Remember in thy gladness

     His grace who gives thee all.  Amen
