Because You Answer Prayer, O Lord

Because you answer prayer, Lord, which we should not forget

when sin in us accumulates and you forgive our debt,

a life of concord with you and in nearness to your side

is happy, filled with goodness. Those you choose are sat…

you choose are sat-is-fied. 


By awesome deeds you answer; you’ve protected us from birth,

O God of our salvation and the hope of all the earth.

The mountains you establish. You subdue the roaring seas. 

Around the world all people see the signs you post 

the signs you post to heed. 


Your river’s full of water and your valleys ripe with grain. 

You crown the year with bounty and relieve our lives of strain. 

When harvest is sufficient it’s with joy that we respond,

and trust we have a future in the years to come 

the years to come, beyond.
