Lyrics

O Thou that hear­est pray­er,
Now to my soul draw near,
Bow down Thy gra­cious ear,
Turn not away.

Refrain

Hear me, Sav­ior, plead­ing with Thee;
Hear me, hear me, O hear Thou me.

O Thou that hear­est pray­er,
Jesus my bless­èd Lord,
Taught by Thy ho­ly Word,
Trusting I come.

Refrain

O Thou that hear­est pray­er,
Lead me till life is past,
Then to Thy­self at last,
Lord, take me home.
