Sunday's Song- Sweet Hour Of Prayer

I really need to heed the words of this song and spend more time in prayer!
I hope everyone has a blessed Sunday!


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!
    the joys I feel, the 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 Savior shows his face,
    and gladly take my station there,
    and wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!

3. 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 every care,
    and wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!

Morning Nancy, I grew up singing this in church but I always love the way you print the verses so that I can study each line. What comforting lyrics! Have a blessed day.
