When The Soul Is Oppressed By The Heat O


When the soul is oppressed by the heat of the day,
And the clouds of contention hang over the way;
When we faint ‘neath the burden He has called us to bear,
There is joy in believing the Lord answers pray’r.

Refrain:
The Lord answers pray’r, yes, the Lord answer pray’r;
There is joy in believing the Lord answers pray’r.

When the sunshine of gladness is flooding the soul,
When the waves of temptation like sea-billows roll;
When the pathway is lost in the tumult of care,
There is joy in believing the Lord answers pray’r. [Refrain]

When the tempest is wildest and storm-winds are high,
When the waters are calms as the stars in the sky;
When our breaking hearts cry from the depths of despair,
There is joy in believing the Lord answers pray’r. [Refrain]
