*I'm just a soul whose intentions are good, Oh Lord! please don't let me be misunderstood*

If God says yes to our prayers, dear heart,

And the sunlight is golden, the sky is blue,

While the smooth road beckons to me and you,

And songbirds are singing as on we go,

Pausing to pick the flowers at our feet,

Stopping to drink of the streams that we meet,

Happy, more happy, our journey will grow,

If God says yes to our prayer, dear heart.

If God says no to our prayer, dear heart,

And the clouds hang heavy and dull and gray;

If the rough rocks hinder and block the way,

While the sharp winds pierce us and sting with cold;

Yet, dear, there is home at the journey’s end,

And these are the trials the Father does send

To draw us as sheep to His Heavenly fold,

If God says no to our prayer, dear heart.


“Be still before the Lord your God,

Almighty Jehovah

and wait patiently for Him”

Psalms 37:7


“Not one word has failed of all the good promises He gave”

1 Kings 8:56
