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.

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]
