He has not answered my prayer yet
Instead He gives me a song.
He has not told me when help will come
But He is with me all the day long.
I asked – I cried – “O Lord do you hear?
I know you are there, I know you are near.
His answer was: “Be patient my child,
My time has not come, be still and abide
The testing is hard. I have mo own way
Be patient, my child, be patient and pray.”
This is what I thought.
But then He made clear:
He is still at work, I need not fear.
His pow’r has no limit, His mercy no end
When I leave my prayer in His bountiful hand.
I know He answers my prayer yet,
And He will give me a song.
I know from where my help will come
For He is with me all the day long.
