GO, when the morning shineth,

Go, when the noon is bright,

Go, when the eve declineth,

Go, in the hush of night;

Go with pure mind and feeling,

Fling earthly thoughts away,

And, in thy chamber kneeling,

Do thou in secret pray!

Remember all who love thee,

All who are loved by thee:

Pray too for those who hate thee,

If any such there be;

Then for thyself in meekness,

A blessing humbly claim,

And link with each petition

Thy great Redeemer's name.

Or, it 'tis e'er denied thee

In solitude to pray,

Should thy thoughts come o'er thee,

When friends are round thy way;

The Spirit's silent breathing,

In meekness raised above,

Will reach his throne of glory,

Who's Mercy, Truth, and Love.

Oh! not a joy or blessing

With this can we compare,

The power that he has given us

To pour our souls in prayer:-

Whene'er thou pinest in sadness

Before his footstool fall,

And turn thee, in thy gladness,

To Him who gave thee all.
