20. 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.

Chorus:
Nearer the gate to the souls 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. [Chorus]

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. [Chorus]

4 O what a holy and clam repose,
Here at the hour of prayer;
Love in its fullness the heart o'erflows,
Here at the hour of prayer. [Chorus]
