THE POWER OF MAN IN PRAYER




There is an eye that never sleeps
Beneath the wing of night;
There is an ear that never shuts
When sink the beams of light.


There is an arm that never tires
When human strength gives way;
There is a love that never fails
When earthly loves decay.


That eye is fixed on seraph throngs;
That arm upholds the sky;
That ear is filled with angel songs;
That love is throned on high.


But there’s a power which man can wield
When mortal aid is vain,
That eye, that arm, that love to reach,
That listening ear to gain.


That power is prayer, which soars on high,
Through Jesus, to the throne,
And moves the hand which moves the world,
To bring salvation down.


---Alternative verses---


There is an eye that never sleeps
Beneath the shade of night;
There is an ear that never shuts
When sink the beams of light.


That power is prayer, which soars on high,
Through Jesus to the Throne,
And moves the Hand which moves the world,
And brings salvation down.
