733. God Answered Prayer for Me

1 I cried to God for mercy,
When I was lost in sin;
He heard my earnest pleadings,
And freely took me in.

God answered prayer for me,
He answered prayer for me;
If thou wilt pray, believing,
I know He’ll answer thee.

2 Praise God, I now am happy,
My soul is light and free,
The God that heard old Daniel
Has answered prayer for me. [Refrain]

3 Whene’er I meet with trouble,
To Him in prayer I go,
For He is always willing
To answer me, I know. [Refrain]

4 Oh, sinner, come to Jesus,
Call on His name today;
If thou wilt come, believing,
He’ll wash thy sins away. [Refrain]
