9166. There's An Hour That Comes

1 There’s an hour that comes
Like a healing balm,
When evening’s shades are falling,
And we lay our cares
At the Savior’s feet,
His gift of grace recalling.

Refrain:
Lovingly now, fervently now,
Welcome this hour
Of holy calm so sweet;
Lovingly now, fervently now,
Breathing the prayer of faith
At Jesus’ feet.

2 ’Tis the hour of prayer
That renews our strength,
Makes our Christian duty clearer;
’Tis the hour of prayer
And its power that draws
Our heav’nly home still nearer. [Refrain]

3 ’Tis the prayer of faith
That dispels our clouds,
Gives joy beyond expression,
For it fills our hearts,
And it crowns our lives
With all that’s worth possessing. [Refrain]
