Sheer persistence, shameless audacity
bold importunity, unrelenting tenacity
on part of the suppliant in prayer
gets God’s attention and draws Him near.
We must have a firm faith
that for answer won’t take no;
a determined stick to itness
that won’t let God go.
Such a one that prays
meeting this condition
obtains their miracle
sees souls saved from perdition.
Great God eternal,
this is my plea,
that you would put such steadfast
doggedness in me.
Don’t let me faint in prayer.
Help me to prevail.
The furtherance of your kingdom
may my petitions surely avail.
