There are times in my
life I've felt distress,
And my burdens, just too hard to bear,
But I found a refuge from all the storms,
When I went to my Lord in prayer.
At the Mercy Seat of Jesus, sometimes alone,
It was there my tears would flow,
When I cried my heart out to Jesus Christ,
At times my heart was very low.
I felt so very close to Heavenís door,
I could hear the Angels sing,
At the Mercy Seat of my sweet Jesus,
My sorrows I would bring.
My tears would flow like raindrops,
That dropped upon the ground,
My heart would be so heavy at times,
I thought in my tears I will drown.
But God reached down from heaven,
And He saw me kneeling there,
He said my child, rise go forth,
For I have heard your every prayer.
Please trust Me as I do My Will,
Seek and you shall find,
Me always at the Mercy Seat,
Come while there is still time.
