What I Needed

8 Aug

This hymn touched me as I sang along in church today. Somehow, He always knows what I need.

Prayer is  the soul’s sincere desire,

Uttered or unexpressed,

The motion of a hidden fire

That trembles in the breast.

Prayer is the burden of a sigh,

The falling of  a tear,

The upward glancing of an eye

When none but God is near.

Prayer is the simplest form of speech

That infant lips can try;

Prayer, the sublimest strains that reach

The Majesty on high.

Prayer is the Christian’s vital breath,

the Christian’s native air,

His watchword at the gates of death;

He enters Heaven with prayer.
