If you know where to get a good pho­to of Law­rence (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


Whisper a prayer in the morning,
Just at the break of the day;
Why fear the fight, in your battle for right,
When you know He will lead all the way?


Whisper a prayer, just whisper a prayer,
Even a whisper He’ll hear over there;
Victory is thine, in His love so sublime,
When to Je­sus you whisper a prayer.

Whisper a prayer at the noontime,
Pause in the midst of the throng,
Look unto Him who can conquer all sin,
In thy weakness, in Him thou art strong.


Whisper a prayer at the twilight,
After the day’s work is done,
No other friend will prove true to the end,
Like Christ Je­sus, the Cru­ci­fied One.
