God Heareth Prayer

God is in heaven, can he hear

Author: Ann Taylor
Published in 59 hymnals

Representative Text

God is in heaven. Can He hear
A little pray’r like mine?
Yes, that He can; I need not fear;
He’ll listen unto mine.

God is in heaven. Can He see
When I am doing wrong?
Yes, that He can; He looks at me
All day and all night long.

God is in heaven. Would He know
If I should tell a lie?
Yes, tho’ I said it very low,
He’d hear it in the sky.

God is in heaven. Does He care?
Or is He good to me?
Yes, all I have to eat or wear;
‘Tis God that gives it me.

God is in heaven. May I pray
To go there when I die?
Yes, love Him, seek Him, and one day
He’ll call me to the sky.
