Prayer Is the soul’s sincere desire

Prayer Is the soul’s sincere desire

James Montgomey

Verse 1
Prayer is the soul’s sincere desire
Unutered or expressed!
The motion of a hidden fire
That trembles in the breast

 

Verse 2
Prayer to the burden of a sigh
The falling of a tear
The upward glancing of an eye
When none but God is near

Verse 3
Prayer is the simplest form of speech
That infants lips can try
Prayers the sublimes strain that reach
The majesty on high

 

Verse 4
Prayer is the contrite sinner’s voice
Returning from his ways
While angels in their songs rejoice
And cry Behold he prays!

Verse 5
Prayer is the Christian’s vital breath
The christian native air
His watchward at the gates of death
He enters heaven with prayer

 

Verse 6
O thou by whom we come to God
The life, the truth, the way
The path of prayer thyself has trod
Lord! Teach us how to pray
