Did You Think to Pray?

 


Lyrics

  1. 1. Ere you left your room this morning,

    Did you think to pray?

    In the name of Christ, our Savior,

    Did you sue for loving favor

    As a shield today?

  2. [Chorus]

    Oh, how praying rests the weary!

    Prayer will change the night to day.

    So, when life gets dark and dreary,

    Don’t forget to pray.

  3. 2. When your heart was filled with anger,

    Did you think to pray?

    Did you plead for grace, my brother,

    That you might forgive another

    Who had crossed your way?

  4. 3. When sore trials came upon you,

    Did you think to pray?

    When your soul was full of sorrow,

    Balm of Gilead did you borrow

    At the gates of day?
