See the great promises, brother,
Are they so hard to believe?
How can you doubt the dear Savior?
Why don’t you ask and receive?

Refrain

Ask, my brother and sister,
For all you need, believe;
Ask the bountiful Giver;
Ask and ye shall receive.

Refrain

Jesus has suffered so meekly,
Sorrowing hearts to relieve;
Trust Him if you should be weakly,
Comfort and strength receive.

Refrain

If there’s a want in your bosom,
Jesus will fill it, believe;
Do you need knowledge and wisdom?
Ask and ye shall receive.

Refrain

Open the kingdom of Heaven,
Jesus all bounty will give;
Here is the pledge in His promise,
Ask and ye shall receive.
