Although it sometimes seems to us our prayers have not been heard,
God always knows our every need without a single word.
And He will not forsake us even though the way is steep,
For He is always near to us, a tender watch to keep....
And in good time He'll answer us, and in His love He'll send
Greater things than we have asked and blessings without end.
So though we do not understand why trouble comes to man,
Can we not be contented just to know it's God's plan?
