Unanswered yet the prayer your lips have pleaded
In agony of heart these many years ?
Does faith begin to fail ? Is hope departing ?
And think you all in vain those falling tears ?
Say not the Father hath not heard your prayer
You shall have your desire SOMETIME, SOMEWHERE.
Unanswered yet ? Nay do not say ungranted
perhaps your work is not yet wholly done
The work began when first your prayer was uttered
And God will finish what He has begun
If you will keep the incense burning there
His glory you shall see SOMETIME, SOMEWHERE.
Unanswered yet ? Faith cannot be unanswered
Her feet are firmly planted on the Rock
Amid the wildest storms she stands undaunted
Nor quails before the loudest thunder shock
She knows Omnipotence has heard her prayer
And cries, “It shall be done” ———- SOMETIME, SOMEWHERE.
