Lord, hear and answer prayer

Psalm 86


Lord, hear and answer prayer.

I am in desperate need.

My life is in Your care,

Will You my words now heed?

From my distress

To You I cry.

Hear from on high

My soul to bless.


Who can compare with You?

Your deeds on earth are known.

It's marvellous to view

Your sovereign glory shown.

Nations You call

The knee to bow.

Before You now

They all must fall.


O teach me from Your Word.

On You I will rely.

Committed to my Lord

Until the day I die.

I fear Your Name,

So I will raise

My highest praise

To spread Your fame.


Hear what my Lord has done.

In love He does forgive.

And all who trust His Son

May now in freedom live.

Great is Your love!

I'm saved from death

Through living breath

Sent from above.
