Tho’ the foes of right oppress,
Keep on praying;
Christ, the Lord, is near to bless,
All prevailing.
Let not fear your heart appall,
Naught of evil can befall,
Stronger is your God than all;
Keep on praying.

Refrain

Keep on praying,
Keep on praying,
Thro’ the Savior’s blessèd name,
All prevailing.

Christian, has your faith grown weak?
Keep on praying;
Do the tears roll down your cheek?
Keep on praying.
Soon you never more will sigh,
Tears no more shall dim your eye,
Pray to Him who’s always nigh,
Never failing.

Refrain

Pilgrim, have you weary grown?
Keep on praying,
God is yet upon His throne,
Keep on praying.
He will hear your faithful cry,
He to help is ever nigh,
You shall conquer by and by,
Keep on praying.

Refrain

Praises shall with prayers ascend
Keep on praying;
Pray and praise till life shall end,
Keep on praying.
Till you reach the golden gate,
Where the ransomed souls await,
Claiming there your triumph great,
Keep on praying.

Refrain
