Sweet hour of prayer


    • Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer, 
    • that calls me from a world of care 
    • and bids me at my Father‟s throne 
    • make all my wants and wishes known! 
    • In seasons of distress and grief 
    • my soul has often found relief, 
    • and oft escaped the tempter‟s snare 
    • by thy return, sweet hour of prayer. 

    • Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer, 
    • the joy I feel, the bliss I share, 
    • of those whose anxious spirits burn 
    • with strong desires for thy return! 
    • With such I hasten to the place 
    • where God, my Saviour, shows His face, 
    • and gladly take my station there, 
    • and wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer. 

    • Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer, 
    • thy wings shall my petition bear 
    • to Him whose truth and faithfulness 
    • engage the waiting soul to bless; 
    • and since He bids me seek His face, 
    • believe His word, and trust His grace, 
    • I‟ll cast on Him my every care, 
    • and wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer
