Prayer is the souls sincere desire
Un-uttered or expressed;
The motion of a hidden fire
That trembles in the breast.
Prayer is the burden of a sigh,
The falling of a tear,
The upward glancing of the eye,
When none but God is near.
Prayer is the simplest form of speech
That infants lips can try,
Prayer is the simplest strains that reach
The Majesty on high.
