Your prayer shall be answered,
Hear the Father’s word of cheer,
“Ere they call I will answer,
While they’re speaking I will hear.”
If your soul still is trusting,
He will never say thee nay;
The answer is coming,
It is now on the way.

Refrain

Now on the way, now on the way,
The answer is coming,
It is now on the way.

His word faileth never;
Oh, ’tis blessèd to believe;
’Tis the soul that is steadfast
Wondrous blessings shall receive.
Yea! His promise remaineth
Though stars should flee away;
The answer is coming,
It is now on the way.

Refrain

His grace is unmeasured,
Reaching into realms afar,
And He yearns to bestow it
Ever where the needy are.
Ask, oh! ask and believing,
God will hear you when you pray,
The answer is coming,
It is now on the way.

Refrain
