God answers prayer, O do not doubt Him;
God answers prayer, believe His Word:
God answers prayer, now venture on Him,
His Word the test of time has stood.

Refrain

God answers prayer, O soul, believe Him;
God answers prayer, I’ve proved Him true!
God answers prayer, now venture on Him;
He answered me, He’ll answer you.

God answers prayer, fear not to trust Him;
God answers prayer, He longs to save:
God answers prayer, look up believing,
For this His only Son He gave.

Refrain

God answers prayer, O child so weary;
God answers prayer, pure you shall be:
God answers prayer, His blood availeth;
From self and sin He’ll make you free.

Refrain

God answers prayer, I dare believe it;
God answers prayer, O praise His name:
God answers prayer, and here this moment,
His love sets all my heart aflame.

Refrain

God answers prayer in times of trial;
God answers prayer when all seems dark;
God answers prayer, He’ll safely guide you,
He loves and knows the way you take.

Refrain
