I look to Thee in every need and never look in vain
I feel thy strong and tender love and all is well again
The thought of thee is mightier far than sin and pain and sorrow are
Than sin and pain and sorrow are, my Lord.

Discouraged in the work of life, disheartened by its load
Shamed by its failures or its fears, I sink beside the road
But let me only think of Thee and then new heart springs up in me
And then new heart springs up in me, my Lord.

There is an eye that never sleeps beneath the wing of night
There is an ear that never shuts when sink the beams of light
There is an arm that never tires when human strength gives way
There is a love that never fails when earthly loves decay.

But there's a power which man can wield when mortal aid is vain
That eye, that arm that loves to reach that listening ear to gain.
That power is prayer which soars on high through Jesus to the throne
Which moves the Hand which moves the world to bring salvation down, to bring salvation down, oh yeah.

There is an eye that never sleeps beneath the wing of night
There is an ear that never shuts when sink the beams of light
There is an arm that never tires when human strength gives way
There is a love that never fails when earthly loves decay.

But there's a power which man can wield when mortal aid is vain
That eye, that arm that loves to reach that listening ear to gain.
That power is prayer which soars on high through Jesus to the throne
And moves the Hand which moves the world to bring salvation down, to bring salvation down, bring it down.

I look to Thee in every need.
