The Lord hears me when I call.
O Lord, righteous God, you hear me when I call;
In my distress you strengthen me; have mercy, hear my prayer. (Refrain)
God has asked, "How long will you dishonor my glory?
How long will you love vanity, and worship falsehoods?" (Refrain)
I know that the Lord does wonders for the faithful;
As long as I believe, the Lord will hear my call. (Refrain)
Stand before the Lord in awe and striving not to sin;
And when the night comes, listen to your heart. (Refrain)
Offer yourself to God, give everything you can.
But more than any sacrifice, give to God your trust. (Refrain)
Many people pray, "God, come and save the world!"
But all we should ask is, "Shine your light upon us." (Refrain)
God has given me a gladness in my heart
that shines much greater than all the joys of harvest. (Refrain)
I lie down in peace, at once I fall asleep;
For only you, Lord, make me dwell in safety. (Refrain)
