2562. The Hour of Prayer

1. Glory to God for the joy to meet
Here at the hour of prayer;
Welcome the bliss of communion sweet
Here at the hour of prayer!

Refrain
Nearer the gate to the soul’s bright home,
Nearer the vales where the faithful roam,
Nearer to God and the Lamb we come,
Here at the hour of prayer.

2. Far from the world we may turn away,
Here at the hour of prayer;
Gladly we rest from the toils of day
Here at the hour of prayer. [Refrain]

3. Rich are the blessings that all may seek
Here at the hour of prayer;
Grace for the weary, the faint, the weak,
Here at the hour of prayer. [Refrain]

4. Oh, what a holy and calm repose
Here at the hour of prayer!
Love in its fullness the heart o’erflows
Here at the hour of prayer. [Refrain]
