How wonderful to hear Your voice,
It acts like Gilead’s balm;
Bringing to me such peace and joy,
That still small voice of calm;
To know for certain, when I pray,
Wherever I may be,
That You are always close at hand,
Listening out for me.
I know that I can share my thoughts,
By calling on Your name;
Throughout my sadness and my joy,
For I my Saviour claim.
In happy times or dire distress,
On Jesu’s name I’ll call;
Knowing that He’s always there
To catch me if I fall.
Through all the trying times of life,
Through all my length of days,
My Father, in my Saviour’s name,
I give to You my praise.
