Granted Prayers

Representative Text

1 I love the LORD, who heard my cry
and granted my request;
in Him who hears and answers pray'r
my trust through life shall rest.

2 With deadly sorrows compassed round,
my heart was full of grief;
then to the LORD I made my pray'er
that He would send relief.

3 The Lord is just and merciful,
and gracious to the meek;
He saved me when I cried to Him,
Though I was poor and weak.

4 Return unto thy rest, my soul,
no longer troubled be;
the Lord sustains thee, and has dealt
most graciously with thee.

5 Before my Savior I will live,
from death He saved my soul,
my eyes from tears, my feet from falls,
and He has made me whole.

6 What shall I render to the Lord,
what shall my off'ring be,
for all the gracious benefits
He has bestowed on me?

7 Salvation's cup my soul will take
while to the Lord I pray,
and with His people I will meet,
my thankful vows to pay.

8 Not lightly does the Lord permit
his chosen saints to die;
from death Thou hast delivered me,
Thy servant, Lord, am I.

9 The sacrifice of praise I bring
while to the Lord I pray,
and with His people I will meet,
my thankful vows to pay.

10 Within His house, the house of prayer,
my soul shall bless the Lord,
and praise to His holy Name
let all His saints accord.
