A Martyr's Prayer


A Martyr's Prayer.

Nearer to Thee, oh God, nearer to Thee I do come; ever closer to Thee I do come.

When in all things I do fail; and suffering and the agony of pain do beset me; I will find comfort by drawing nearer to Thee, oh God.

When the oppressors of the world do gather around me and divide my worldly possessions among themselves, yea even if my life they do seek to take; I will find comfort by drawing nearer to Thee, oh God, nearer to Thee.

If I be cast down and trodden under the feet of men and there be no one to help me; I will find comfort by drawing nearer to Thee, oh God; nearer to Thee.

When all hope is gone and all my aspirations are dashed to pieces and my future seems bleak; I will find comfort by drawing nearer to Thee, oh God, nearer to Thee. Amen!
