Bow to His Majesty


getting inside~

While I worked I thought today,

I need to find time to pray;

I haven’t prayed, but need to pray,

What has kept those prayers away?

I went to church but lost the key,

The devil saw to that, so next time

I felt an urge to go, I was locked out;

Too bad I lost that key!

The preacher preached so good last night,

With a burden on his heart;

Alas he cried, to so many of us;

To the altar you’ve not made a start.

Some were out a working still,

They had not been able to come;

But did they feel Gods spirit pull,

To pray right where they are?

It is a royal thing, this privilege to pray,

It’s a way to gain a victory

From day to day to day;

And not to lose the battle to,

The wicked stealer of the heart!

A King is coming for his saints,

To rise with him we shall;

Look Up! Ye valiant soldiers,

The skies are breaking fast.

Now I ask again this question,

How hard is it to pray?

Cannot we on our knees to fall?

In a simple bow, to His Majesty?

With all the things I have to do,

He helps me make it through;

His grace he adds unto my life,

So, I will pray, I will pray.
