923. The Blessing of Prayer

1 There’s stealing o’er my peaceful, trusting soul
A power that is most divinely sweet,
As all my burdens on the Lord I roll,
And meekly linger at His blessed feet.

Refrain:
Then let us ever humbly watch and pray,
Seek oft in tears the Savior’s lovely face;
Come boldly with thy needs for every day,
Blest mercy’s waiting at the throne of grace.

2 I kneel in sweet submission while my prayer
Ascends on wings of faith to Father’s throne;
He listens while my hopeful spirit there
Its faltering petitions maketh known. [Refrain]

3 What bliss to dwell where heaven’s blessings fall,
Until my soul, with mercy’s drops bedewed
Responds in answer to my Father’s call,
With words of thankfulness and gratitude. [Refrain]

4 As angels came to dark Gethsemane
To bless the Savior as He there did bow
Beneath the shadows dense, on bended knee;
O Father, bless my waiting spirit now! [Refrain]
