1 Prayer to a heart of lowly love
opens the gate of heaven above.

2 Ah, prayer is God's high dwelling-place,
wherein His children see His face.

3 From earth to heaven we build a stair,
the name by which we call it, prayer.

4 Prayer is the gracious Father's knee;
on it the child climbs lovingly.

5 Love's rain, the Spirit's holy ray,
and tears of joy are theirs who pray.

6 Prayer to a heart of lowly love
opens the gate of heaven above.
