Chris Tomlin – God Who Listens Lyrics

God Who Listens By Chris Tomlin

The God who made the winters and the summers
The One who put the stars all in their place
The only One who stands above all others
He knows me by name

The angels hide their faces in His presence
The demons run for cover when You speak
You rule the world and reign above the heavens
And still draw close to me

When I close my eyes
I know that

I’m not just hopin’, I’m not just wishin’
I know I’m prayin’ to a God who listens
I know He hears me, I know He’s livin’
Yes, I am prayin’ to a God who listens

He walks with me and leads me by still waters
I lay my troubles down at His feet (Lay my troubles down)
It’s amazing that the Savior and the Father
He is (He is) A friend (A friend) To me
How can it be, oh?

I’m not just hopin’, I’m not just wishin’
I know I’m prayin’ to a God who listens
I know He hears me, I know He’s livin’
Yes, I am prayin’ (Yes, I am prayin’) To a God who listens
Your God who listens

Who knows me, who loves me
Who never will fail me
Who tells me that I am His own
And You surround me, remind me
You always are for me
So I come boldly to Your throne

I’m not just hopin’, I’m not just wishin’
Yes, I am prayin’ to a God who listens
Oh, Lord a promise, that we’ve been given
Yes, we are prayin’ to a God who listens

Ooh, yeah, oh, yeah-yeah
Oh, oh-oh
I’m not just hopin’ (I’m not just hopin’)
I’m not just wishin’ (I’m not just wishin’)
