206 Prayer Meeting


Sweet hour of pray'r, sweet hour of pray'r,
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 pray'r.

Sweet hour of pray'r, sweet hour of pray'r,
Thy wings shall my petition bear
To Him whose truth and faithfulness
Engaged 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 ev'ry care
And wait for thee, sweet hour of pray'r.

Sweet hour of pray'r, sweet hour of pray'r,
May I thy consolation share,
Till from Mt. 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 thru the air,
Fairewell, farewell! sweet hour of pray'r.
