Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full Text

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]
