Christ hears

 

Christ hears the prayers 
Of our troubled minds, 
As he pleads in Gethsemane.

Christ hears the prayers 
Of our stricken hearts,
As he hangs on Golgotha’s tree.

Christ hears the prayers 
Of our wretched souls,
As he yearns for death’s release.

Christ hears the prayers 
Of our failing strength,
As he finds, at last, God’s peace.
