The Lord Has Heard And Answered Prayer


The Lord has heard and answered prayer
and saved his people in distress;
this to the coming age declare,
that they his holy name may bless.

The Lord, exalted on his throne,
looked down from heav’n with pitying eye
to still the lowly captive’s moan
and save his people doomed to die.

All men in Zion shall declare
his gracious name with one accord,
when kings and nations gather there
to serve and worship God the Lord.

The earth and heav’ns shall pass away,
like vesture worn and laid aside,
but changeless you shall live alway,
your years forever shall abide.

You, O Jehovah, shall endure,
your throne forever is the same;
and to all generations sure
shall be your great memorial name.
