Prayer is the Key
Prayer is the key for the bending knee
To open the morn’s first hours;
See the incense rise to the starry
Like perfume from the flow’rs.
Not a soul so sad, nor a heart so glad
When cometh the shades of
But the daybreak song will the joy prolong,
And some darkness turn to light.
Take the golden key in your hand and
As the night-tide drifts away,
How its blessèd hold is a crown of gold,
Thro’ the weary hours of day.
When the shadows fall, and the vesper call
Is sobbing its low refrain,
’Tis a garland sweet to the toil-dent feet,
And an antidote for
Soon our toils will cease, and will come release;
Life’s tears shall be wiped away,
As the pearl gates swing, and the gold harps
And we enter eternal day.
