A word of prayer when the day begins
Brings a day of blessing sure;
A word of prayer when the twilight dims
Brings a night of rest secure.

Refrain

A word of prayer in the morning,
A word of prayer at night!
When sorely distressed,
A prayer brings you rest,
Making all things right!

A word of prayer when the heart is sad
Brings you comfort, peace and rest;
A word of prayer when the days are glad
Adds a joy to hours most blest.

Refrain

A word of prayer when the heart is lone
Brings a Friend to understand;
A word of prayer when your strength is gone
Brings the clasp of a mighty hand.

Refrain

Always a prayer to the God above
Brings a blessing sweet and true;
Enfolds your heart in His tender love,
Lends His boundless strength to you.
