Though Shadows Gather And The Way Seems


Tho’ shadows gather and the way seems long,
Clouds hide the sunshine, God can give a song;
Lest not thy courage falter, nor despair,
For Jesus answers prayer.

Chorus:
Jesus answers prayer,
Jesus answers prayer;
Ask of Him, and come believing,
For Jesus answers prayer.

He knows the way is hard, be not dismayed,
Trust in the Saviour, O be not afraid;
Tho’ still unanswered,-trust His love and care,
For Jesus answers prayer. [Chorus]

Can we not trust Him, who such love doth show?
His way makes our way, wheresoe’er we go;
His yoke is easy, He the load will bear,
For Jesus answers prayer. [Chorus]
