1 Great comforts does the Saviour give,
To those who in his word believe;
He says the father will indeed,
Grant to his Saints all they do need.
2 He bids us ask by faithful pray'r,
And solemnly he doth declare;
What e'er you ask in my bless'd name,
Ye shall be sure to have the same!
3 God's word and promise never fail,
All faithful pray'rs they must prevail;
God's promises are not in vain,
What e'er we need, we shall obtain.
4 God ever bows his gracious ear,
The pray'rs of faithful souls to hear;
Their times of troubles will be past
And all their wants reliev'd at last.
5 When the Disciples were distress'd;
With many doubts and fears oppress'd--
The Saviour bid them bear and wait,
And patiently endure their fate.
6 To their great comforts they should find,
That God was gracious, good and kind;
And they should find he was their friend,
Who made them happy in the end.
7 We join to pray in Jesus' name,
For God will be to us the same;
Such as he was in former days,
Which we shall witness to his praise.
