Lyrics

  1. 1. 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!
    And oft escaped the tempter's snare
    By thy return, sweet hour of prayer!
  2. 2. 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 ev'ry care
    And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!
    I'll cast on him my ev'ry care
    And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!
