Representative Text

1 Long you have pled at the throne of His grace,
Shed bitter tears in that sweet, hallowed place;
Yet, though it seem He is hiding His face,
Keep on praying, God will answer your prayer.

Refrain:
Keep on praying, keep on praying,
You shall have your reward sometime, somewhere;
Trust Him, believe, and thy guerdon* receive;
Keep on praying, God will answer your prayer.

2 Doubt not His love, nor His promise assail;
Only believe, for His word cannot fail;
“Ask what ye will,” and your plea shall avail,
Keep on praying, God will answer your prayer. [Refrain]

3 In His own time, in His own perfect way—
He knoweth best—it is thine to obey;
Though you receive no assurance today,
Keep on praying, God will answer your prayer. [Refrain]

4 Never despair, He is faithful and true;
Keep holding on, there is vict’ry for you;
All you can ask He is able to do—
Keep on praying, God will answer your prayer. [Refrain]
