Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 When the soul is oppressed by the heat of the day,
And the clouds of contention hang over the way;
When we faint ‘neath the burden He has called us to bear,
There is joy in believing the Lord answers pray’r.

Refrain:
The Lord answers pray’r, yes, the Lord answer pray’r;
There is joy in believing the Lord answers pray’r.

2 When the sunshine of gladness is flooding the soul,
When the waves of temptation like sea-billows roll;
When the pathway is lost in the tumult of care,
There is joy in believing the Lord answers pray’r. [Refrain]

3 When the tempest is wildest and storm-winds are high,
When the waters are calms as the stars in the sky;
When our breaking hearts cry from the depths of despair,
There is joy in believing the Lord answers pray’r. [Refrain]
