1 Just one hour alone with Jesus,
O what rapture in my soul!
When I kneel in His dear presence,
All my care on Him to roll;
O the joy of that sweet meeting,
In the quiet even tide;
When He speaks my sin forgiven,
When I in His love abide.
Just one hour alone with Jesus!
Just one blessed hour with Him;
How I long for that sweet meeting,
In the twilight shadows dim.
2 Just one hour alone with Jesus,
Tho’ my soul is oft deprest;
When the cares of life grow heavy,
And my weary feet need rest;
Just one hour with Christ my Saviour,
Fills my heart with joy divine;
When I feel His arms around me,
And I know that He is mine. [Refrain]
3 Just one hour alone with Jesus,
At the close of life’s short day;
I will seek again His presence,
And He will not turn away;
Just beyond the pearly portals,
There uplifted by His grace;
I shall spend my life with Jesus,
I shall meet Him face to face. [Refrain]
