Representative Text

1 Jesus, this mid-day hour of prayer

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.
