  1. On the Wings of Prayer

    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
    than 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, and blue,
    There's always one door
    that is open to you---

    And that is the door
    to the house of prayer
    And you'll find God waiting
    to meet you there,
    And the house of prayer
    is no farther away
    Than the 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
    When we pray in His name
    "Thy will be done"----
    And the burdens that seemed
    too heavy to bear
    Are lifted away
    on the wings of prayer
