When I Pray

When I pray, when I pray, and heed what Christ will say,

Faith and hope spring forth anew ever when I pray.

Faith and hope spring forth anew ever when I pray.

 

When I just can't find my path through this troubled day,

I seek shelter in Your grace, and kneel down to pray.

Though my storms may blaze in wrath, peace will come my way

In the love that pours from You when I stop and pray.

When I pray, when I pray, and hear what God will say,

Faith and hope spring forth anew ever when I pray.

Faith and hope spring forth anew ever when I pray.

 

When temptations fall on me in shadows cold and gray,

I let my heart take rest in You, and close my eyes to pray.

As ambition's slippery voice tests its prideful sway,

I draw strength from lessons learned making time to pray.

When I pray, when I pray, and heed what Christ will say,

Faith and hope spring forth anew ever when I pray.

Faith and hope spring forth anew ever when I pray.

 

Walking hand in hand with You, sharing all the way,

Teaches me about the grace I feel when I pray.

Taking in Your words of love to power through each day

Helps me witness of the trust I gain when I pray.

When I pray, when I pray, and heed what Christ will say,

Faith and hope spring forth anew ever when I pray.

Faith and hope spring forth anew ever when I pray.
