1 Just one hour with the Saviour,
When the way seems dreary and long;
How it turns all the clouds into sunshine,
The tears into jubilant song.

Refrain:
Just one hour with the Saviour,
Just one hour to pray,
How it gives grace and power,
To meet life’s problems each day;
Just one hour in His presence,
Lost in the depth of His love;
‘Tis precious to be alone, Lord, with Thee,
Alone one hour with my Saviour.

2 Just one hour with the Saviour,
When the world would lead me away,
Brings His love to my heart in such fullness,
That I from His side would ne’er stray. [Refrain]

3 Just one hour with the Saviour,
O yes, ‘tis wondrously sweet,
Just by faith hear Him say, ” I am with thee,”
Gives me grace all life’s trials to meet. [Refrain]
