Sometimes I wonder if we really understand the importance, the power, the wonderful blessing we can have during that “sweet hour of prayer”.
Sweet Hour of Prayer
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.
2. Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer,
They wings shall my petition bear,
To Him whose truth and faithfulness
Engage the waiting soul to bless;
And since He dids me seek His face,
I’ll cast on Him my every care,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer.
3. Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer,
May I thy consolation share,
Till, from Mount Pisgah’s lofty heights,
I view my home, and take my fight;
This robe of flesh I’ll drop,
And rise to seize the everlasting prize;
And shout, while passing through the air,
Farewell, farewell, sweet hours of prayer
Try taking some time this week and talk to Jesus!
