Ere you left your room this morning
Did you think to pray?
In the name of Christ, our Savior,
Did you sue for loving favor
As a shield today?

Oh, how praying rests the weary!
Prayer will change the night to day
So, when life gets dark and dreary
Don’t forget to pray

When your heart was filled with anger
Did you think to pray?
Did you plead for grace, my brother
That you might forgive another
Who had crossed your way?

Repeat Chorus

When sore trials came upon you
Did you think to pray?
When your soul was full of sorrow
Balm of Gilead did you borrow
At the gates of day?

Repeat Chorus

words and music by Mary A. Pepper Kidder and William G. Perkins
arrangement by Ben Truman, Dan Truman and Jason Deere
