We have a God Who hears our every prayer
We have a God Who bottles all our tears
Our Lord is near, much nearer than our breathing
How close is that! We have no need to fear.
We do not take one step without His presence
His plans with thought and love have long been made
If we but yield our will, our lives to Him
What peace will come as every step He aids.
He shelters us beneath His covering wings
He hides us in His own, His secret place
Though trials we face, He walks along beside us
He cuts the bands of failure and disgrace.
He still holds on when we are in the fire
We aren’t withdrawn till all the dross is gone
All our God’s works are perfect, so aspire
To do your very best; keep walking on.
One day we’ll hear the call, “Friend come up higher.”
One day He’ll say “Well done, my child, well done.”
Then as we soar through sky and clouds our desire
To be ever with the Lord has now been won.
