    Verse 1
    There is an eye that never sleeps
    Beneath the wing of night;
    There is an ear that never shuts
    When sinks the beams of light.

    Verse 2
    There is an arm that never tires
    When human strength gives way;
    There is a love that never fails
    When earthly loves decay.

    Verse 3
    That eye is fix'd on seraph throngs;
    That arm upholds the sky;
    That ear is fill'd with angels' songs;
    That love is throned on high.

    Verse 4
    But there's a power, which man can wield,
    When mortal aid is vain,
    That eye, that arm, that love to reach,
    That listening ear to gain.

    Verse 5
    That power is prayer, which soars on high,
    Through Jesus, to the throne,
    And moves the hand, which moves the world,
    To bring salvation down.

    Verse 6
    Oh, Thou whose mercy knows no end,
    Whose love can never cease,
    Grant that we have both faith and love,
    So, we may always pray.
