Representative Text

1 Plead the precious promises of Jesus,
Cast upon Him all your anxious care,
Call upon Him and He will deliver,
For Jesus answers prayer.

Jesus answers prayer,
Jesus answers prayer,
Cast on Him your burden, roll on Him your care;
Plead His word of love and His promise prove,
For Jesus answers prayer.

2 When the storm and stress of life surround you,
And the load seems more than you can bear,
Go to Him for aid and He will help you,
For Jesus answers prayer. [Refrain]

3 When perplexing problems you are facing,
And the path seems rugged ev’rywhere,
Look to Jesus, He will safely guide you,
For Jesus answers prayer. [Refrain]

4 Matters not what sorrows may enfold you,
There is One who can your heartache share;
Go to Him whatever may befall you,
For Jesus answers prayer. [Refrain]
