O Thou that hearest prayer,
Now to my soul draw near,
Bow down Thy gracious ear,
Turn not away.

Refrain

Hear me, Savior, pleading with Thee;
Hear me, hear me, O hear Thou me.

O Thou that hearest prayer,
Jesus my blessèd Lord,
Taught by Thy holy Word,
Trusting I come.

Refrain

O Thou that hearest prayer,
Lead me till life is past,
Then to Thyself at last,
Lord, take me home.

Refrain
