Brigg’s Collection


COME at the morning hour,

Come, let us kneel and pray;

Prayer is the Christian pilgrim’s staff

To walk with God all day.


At noon, beneath the Rock

Of Ages, rest and pray;

Sweet is that shelter from the sun

During the heat of day.


At evening, in thy home,

Around its altar, pray;

And finding there the house of God,

With heaven then close the day.


When midnight vails our eyes,

Oh, it is sweet to say,

I sleep, but my heart waketh, Lord,

With Thee to watch and pray!
