O God, hear me calling and answer, I pray!

O God, hear me calling and answer, I pray!
No distance can silence the words that I say,
no mountain, no ocean can hinder my prayer
when deep is my sorrow and dark my despair.

2. When trouble comes near me and enemies taunt,
Lord, you are the fortress no evil can daunt;
and safe on the rock that is higher than I
your strength is my hope as you answer my cry.

3. For Lord you have heard all the vows I have made —
my thoughts and intentions when homage I paid;
with all who have lived by the fear of your name,
Lord, grant all my prayers as your praise I proclaim.

4. I long for the day when your dwelling is mine,
your wings for a shelter, your presence a shrine;
I praise you on earth for your mercy and grace:
what blessings I’ll sing when I look on your face!
