No. 48.              Sweet Hour of prayer.

" Evening, and morning, and at noon will I pray, and cry aloud."—Psalm lv. 17.
Sweet hour of prayer ! sweet hour of prayer !
Sweet hour of prayer ! sweet hour of prayer !
Thy wings shall my petition bear
May I thy consolation share,
To Him whose truth and faithfulness
Till, from Mount Pisgah's lofty height,
Engage the waiting soul to bless.
I view my home and take my flight:
And since He bids me seek His face,
This robe of flesh I'll drop, and rise
Believe His Word, and trust His grace,
I'll cast on Him my every care,
To seize the everlasting prize;
And shout, while passing through the air,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer 1
"Farewell, farewell, sweet hour of prayer!".
