GEC English Hymn

English Hymn 99

STANZA 1
What various hindrances we meet
In coming to the mercy-seat!
Yet who, that knows the worth of prayer,
But wishes to be often there!

STANZA 2
Pray’r makes the darken’d clouds withdraw,
Pray’r climbs the ladder Jacob saw,
Gives exercise to faith and love,
Brings every blessing from above.

STANZA 3
Restraining prayer, we cease to fight;
Pray’r makes the Christian’s armour bright;
And Satan tremble when he sees
The weakest saint upon his knees.
