But verily God hath heard me;
he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
Psalm 66:19 KJV
My enemies have painted me as vile;
An evil man, a phony hypocrite.
If this is true, could I then God beguile?
Would He then heed my prayers and thus commit?
Yet God has heard me, I who am His slave.
The love He has for me has changed my ways,
For He sent Christ His Son whose life He gave;
He died for all my sins. It’s He I praise!
If I were still the man I used to be,
I would not waste my time to spread the Word.
But my old self is dead on Calvary,
And now I follow Christ, His Spirit’s heard.
My Father hears my prayers; I am His child.
He answers every one so clear and mild.
