Sweet Hour of PrayerC F Sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer! C G That calls me from a world of care C F And bids me at my Fatherís throne C G G7 C Make all my wants and wishes known. C G C F C In seasons of distress and grief, G C F C G My soul has often found relief, C F And oft escaped the tempterís snare C G G7 C By thy return, sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer! The joys I feel, this 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, Iíll cast on Him my every care And wait for Thee, sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer! May I thy consolation share ĎTil from Mount Pisgahís lofty height I view my home, and take my flight: This robe of flesh Iíll drop and rise To seize the everlasting prize And shout while passing through the air, Farewell, farewell, sweet hour of prayer!
