1 O brother, on life’s rugged pathway,
Oft tempted to faint and despair,
Remember our Father in heaven
Will ever give heed to your pray’r.

Refrain:
He heareth your cry, all your need he’ll supply,
His arms everlasting will surely upbear;
Your courage renew, he careth for you,
And he will both hear you and answer your pray’r.

2 The load may press hard that he gives you,
But strength he will give you to bear;
And ere you shall faint ‘neath the burden,
Remember the Hearer of pray’r. [Refrain]

3 Life’s sorrows may thickly surround you,
Your heart may be weary with care;
But comfort and help all sufficient
Are found in the Hearer of pray’r. [Refrain]

4 The way thro’ the valley and shadow
Leads on to a home bright and fair,
One only can lighten this darkness,
And he is the Hearer of pray’r. [Refrain]

5 Keep close to his side as you journey,
Trust ever his love and his care,
For nothing of evil can harm you
While close to the Hearer of pray’r. [Refrain]
