For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve, Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me. – Acts 27:22, 25
Sometimes the shadows gather and mists obscure the way;
Sometimes, the clouds grow heavy and darken all the day.
How precious to remember our Father’s loving care,
That He still loves His children and He answers prayer.
Keep on believing, God will answer prayer.
Keep on believing, never despair.
Though you be heavy laden and burdened down with care,
Remember God still loves You and He answers prayer.
Sometimes, the way is dreary we seem to walk alone.
Forgetting that the Father keeps watch above His own.
How many needless sorrows the faithless have to bear,
For, God still loves His children and He answers prayer.
Sometimes our loving service, seems destined but to fail.
And evils that oppose us, seems certain to prevail.
How sweet the cosnsolation that God is everywhere
That He still loves His children and still answers prayer
O soul, weighed down with sorrow beneath a heavy load.
Remember God will help you, however rough the road.
His grace is still sufficient for every load of care,
God ever loves His children and He answers prayer.
