This poem is found on pg. 78 in “God in Kado Land” by H.A. Baker (grandfather to Rolland Baker, cofounder along with his wife Heidi of Iris Global). This book can be downloaded for free at IrisGlobal.org. It is well worth the time to read it. I did not find any copyright information on it but have given the song to Heidi on a CD asking her to let me know if they had any problems with me sharing it with friends and I haven’t heard anything.

Lyrics

When I Pray
(H.A. Baker)

Jesus listen when I pray — when I pray.
Hold me by Thy blessed hand;
Teach me, Lord, to understand
All Thy will for me today
When I pray, when I pray

Savior, touch me when I pray — when I pray
Touch me, Lord, and make me whole
In my spirit, body, soul.
Perfect me in every way
When I pray, when I pray.

Savior, fix my eyes when I pray — when I pray
On Thy thorn-pierced holy face,
And so guard me by Thy grace
That my thoughts may never stray
When I pray, when I pray.

Help me listen when I pray — when I pray
To Thy quiet, kindly voice,
So that Thou shalt be my choice
In all I do or think or say
When I pray, when I pray.

Keep me quiet when I pray — when I pray
Hide me from the world below,
As to higher heights I go
Into realms of endless day
When I pray, when I pray
