When Prayers Rise

When prayers rise up to Heaven,
Mercy touches Earth.
From deep inside the lion’s den,
Mourning becomes mirth.

When saints cry out to God above,
He answers from His throne.
Experiencing His great love,
We know we’re not alone.

The power of Almighty God
In grace is shown to man.
Down here on this earthly sod,
We see His glorious plan.

In His surpassing faithfulness,
His kindness becomes clear.
In love abundantly He’ll bless,
So we have no need to fear.
