Just close your eyes and open your heart,
© Helen Steiner Rice
And feel your worries and cares depart.
Just yield yourself to the Father above,
And let Him hold you secure in His love.
For life on earth grows more involved,
With endless problems that can't be solved.
But God only asks us to do our best,
Then He will take over and do the rest.
So when you are tired, discouraged and blue,
There is always one door that is open to you.
And that is the door to the House of Prayer,
And you'll find God waiting to meet you there.
And the House of Prayer is no further away,
Than the quiet spot where you kneel to pray.
For the heart is a temple when God is there,
As we place ourselves in His loving care.
And He hears every prayer and answers each one,
when we pray in His name, Thy will be done.
The burdens that seemed too heavy to bear,
Are lifted away on the wings of a prayer.
