    Verse 1
    Jesus the Son, Lord of us all
    Who is always the same ever
    Give ear to the cry of Thy child
    And teach us how to pray to Thee,
    Give us a heart that prays to Thee,
    Wake us early to seek Thy face.

    Verse 2
    We cannot think any good thought
    Our intentions cannot be good
    Except, Thou our Creator put
    Such grace and goodness deep within;
    Then we shall have a heart like Thine,
    Compassionate, yielded to Thee.

    Verse 3
    Jesus, listen to the complaint
    Of Thy own in severe trial
    Give those things we do not possess
    Send the blessed Comforter down
    Give to us a spirit of prayer
    Send Thy Holy Ghost to our souls.

    Verse 4
    Send the Holy Spirit to us
    Make us a part to Thy body
    That all our ailment may be stemmed,
    That sinner's anxious thoughts may cease
    Power to prevail with Thee in prayer,
    Until our heart is house of prayer.

    Verse 5
    Come down in the spirit of prayer
    To us who are seeking for Thee,
    The grace to prevail in our prayer,
    Is our earnest supplication,
    Endow us with this, Lord Jesus
    Thou will supply all other things.
