Verse 1
Go, when the morning shineth
Go, when the noon is bright;
Go, when the eve declineth;
Go, in the hush of night;
Go with pure mind and feeling
Fling earthly cares away,
And in thy chamber kneeling
Do thou in secret pray.

Verse 2
Remember all who love thee,
All who are loved by thee;
Pray too for those who hate thee,
If any such there be:
Then for thyself in meekness
A blessing humbly claim,
And link with each petition
Thy great Redemeer's name.

Verse 3
Or if it's here denied thee
In solitude to pray,
Should holy thoughts come o'er thee,
When friends are round thy way,
Even then the silent pleading
Of thy spirit raised up
Will reach His throne of glory,
Who's mercy, truth, and love.

Verse 4
Oh, not a joy or blessing
With this can we compare;
The power that He has given us
To pour our souls in prayer;
Where'er thou pin'st in sadness,
Before His footstool fall,
And remember in thy gladness
His grace who gives thee all.
