    Verse 1
    Come to the morning prayer,
    Come, let us kneel and pray;
    Prayer is the Christian pilgrim's staff,
    To walk with GOD all day.

    Verse 2
    At noon beneath the Rock
    Of Ages rest and pray;
    Sweet is the shadow from the heat,
    When the sun smites by day.

    Verse 3
    At eve shut to the door,
    Round the home-altar pray,
    And finding there the house of GOD,
    At heaven's gate close the day.

    Verse 4
    When midnight seals our eyes,
    Let each in spirit say,
    I sleep, but my heart waketh, LORD,
    With Thee to watch and pray.
