Ever Listening

In Your unspeakable glory 
  in Your highest heaven 
  where seraphs and saints 
  cry out with joy 
      "Holy! Holy! Holy!" 
        before Your throne unceasingly, 
You turn Your face toward me 
 and graciously incline 
Your ever-listening ear. 

Because You love me, 
You take care to hear 
 both when I'm full of faith 
 and when I'm full of fear. 

You answer my seeking heart's 
 every cry in tender terms 
 of eternal endearment.

Psalm 17:6,7

The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
Psalm 34:15
