1 Jesus, this mid-day hour of prayer
We consecrate to thee;
Forgetful of each earthly care,
We would thy glory see.
2 We come thy presence to implore;
Oh, teach us how to pray!
Impart to us thy Spirit's power--
Thy saving grace display.
3 Baptize with energy divine
The contrite soul afresh;
Oh, bow the stubborn will to thine,
And give the heart of flesh.
4 Unite our heart, unite our tongues,
In lofty praise to thee;
Accept the tribute of our songs,
Thou Holy One in Three.
