1 Ev’ry pray’r will find its answer—
Ev’ry earnest, trusting plea;
Pray, and know that God is faithful,
Tho’ the world unfaithful be!

Ev’ry pray’r will find its answer,
For the word of God is sure;
Suns may fade and worlds may vanish,
But His promise shall endure.

2 He has promised, “Whatsoever
Ye shall ask, ye shall receive;”
Naught shall fail of blest fulfillment,
If we steadfastly believe. [Chorus]

3 Ev’ry pray’r will find its answer,
Tho’ it be in distant years;
Past our earthly time of testing,
Past our pleading and our tears. [Chorus]

4 Ev’ry pray’r will find its answer,
Let us cling with hope sublime;
To the promise everlasting,
Reaching past the bounds of time. [Chorus]
