The one who answered Abraham at Moriah will answer us.
The one who answered Sarah and made her laugh will answer us.
The one who answered Isaac on the altar will answer us.
The one who answered Rachel and Leah will answer us.

The one who answered Miriam on the Nile will answer us.
The one who answered Israel on the Red Sea will answer us.
The one who answered Moses on Sinai will answer us.
The one who answered Hannah in Shiloh will answer us.

The one who answered David in Jerusalem will answer us.
The one who answered Elijah in a still small voice will answer us.
The one who answered Esther in Shushan will answer us.
The one who answered those who seek will answer us.
