1 Away with doubt, away with fear,
I know that God is always near;
I lay on Him my ev’ry care,
For He answers ev’ry pray’r.

Refrain:
He answers ev’ry pray’r,
To some He says “Yes,” to others “No,”
To some He says “Stay,” to others “Go,”
In His own time and way,
I know He answers ev’ry pray’r.

2 The billows high around me roll,
In His own hand He keeps my soul;
In Him I trust, no matter where,
For He answers ev’ry pray’r. [Refrain]

3 Let storm-clouds roll above my heard,
They’re filled with blessings He will shed;
I’ll have for these no anxious care,
For He answers ev’ry pray’r. [Refrain]

4 In life or death my song shall be,
The mighty God still cares for me;
Let trials come, what need I care,
For He answers ev’ry pray’r. [Refrain]
