Please answer me when I pray,
My God who is always there.
You’ve always helped me in the past,
Please be kind and hear my prayer.
God has chosen the faithful,
He hears me when I call to Him,
But you had better fear the Lord,
Search your heart as you lie in bed,
Many people pray for blessings,
For You to be kind O God Divine.
But the joy that You have given me,
Is more valuable than corn or wine.
So when I lie down to go to sleep,
For You O Lord do keep me safe,
And my inner turmoils cease.
