I lift my hands in confidence that you will hear my prayer,

I wonder what you think of them as I cast all my care,

Up to the heavens where you dwell, where only you can see,

As you look down and I look up, I feel so very small,

You’ve given everything for me, you’ve given me your all.

I thank you for the love you’ve shown, through your own treasured Son,

Through His great sacrifice I live, and with you I am one,

And now I pray with faith and trust that you will hear my prayer,

The doors to heaven open wide for all the world to share.
