1 How sweet is the blessing our hearts find in pray’r!
What comfort and peace it inspires!
A refuge in sorrow, a solace in care,
A shield in temptation’s fierce fires.

Refrain:
Prayer, prayer,
Balm for wounded hearts;
Prayer, prayer,
Shield for Satan’s darts;
Prayer, prayer,
Safeguard all the way,
Till life’s rugged path leads up
To realms of day.

2 How blest the assurance, when trials assail,
That pray’r brings us strength to o’ercome;
That our pleadings for succor shall ever prevail,
Till at length we shall reach that blest home. [Refrain]

3 The young and the aged rejoice in its power,
The weak and the weary at heart;
Through life’s toilsome journey, in death’s trying hour
Its promises will not depart. [Refrain]
