1. God of Prayer

From the recording In the Midst of the Assembly


God of Prayer

God almighty, God around me,
Be my Presence everywhere!
Nearer since the day You found me:
God so near! O God of prayer!

God all-loving, all-forgiving,
Who could know the hours we share?
Endless pleading, full thanksgiving,
You and I, so long in prayer!

Father, when You take my spirit,
Grant me strength for one last prayer!
Faint it be, though, You would hear it;
Hear me then! O God, be there!
