“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!
May I thy consolation share, Till, from Mount Pisgah’s lofty height,
I view my home and take my flight. This robe of flesh I’ll drop, and rise
To seize the everlasting prize, And shout, while passing through the air,
“Farewell, farewell, sweet hour of prayer!”
