Lord Hear Me When I Pray And Answer Me


Lord, hear me when I pray,
And answer me in grace;
Oft as I hear Thee say,
Come ye and seek My face,
My heart and lips their answer speak,
Thy face, Jehovah, will I seek.

Hide no thy face from me,
In wrath turn not away,
My help and Savior be,
Forsake me not, I pray;
Should father, mother, both forsake,
The Lord on me will pity take.

Teach me, O Lord, Thy way,
Make plain tome my path;
Because my foes, I pray,
Protect me from their wrath;
To false accusers, cruel foes,
O Lord, do not my soul expose.

Faint-hearted would I be,
Didst Thou not promise, Lord,
I shall Thy goodness see
While Thou dost life accord.
Wait on the Lord, nor faint, nor fear,
Yea, trust and wait, the Lord is near.
