On Wings Of Prayer - Helen Steiner Rice

Just close your eyes and open your heart
And feel your worries and cares depart,

Just yield yourself to the Father above
And let Him hold you secure in His love -

For life on earth grows more involved
With endless problems that can't be solved -

But God only asks us to do our best,

Then He will "take over" and finish the rest -

So, when you are tired, discouraged or blue,
There's always one door that is open for you -

The door is "House of Prayer".

And you'll find God waiting to meet you there,

And "The House of Prayer" is no farther away

Than quiet spot where you kneel and pray -

For the heart is a temple when God is there
As we place ourselves in His loving care,

And He hears every prayer and answers each one
Then we pray in His name "Thy Will Be Done" -

And the burdens that seemed too heavy to bear

Are lifted away on "Wings of Prayer".
