Representative Text

1. One blessed hour with Jesus our Lord,
One blessed hour to feast on His Word;
One blessed hour with Jesus apart,
One blessed hour to calm the troubled heart.

One sweet hour of holy, calm delight,
One sweet hour of tender, melting love;
One sweet hour, O precious Saviour,
One sweet hour with thee.

2 One blessed hour with Jesus to plead,
One blessed hour to tell Him our need;
One blessed hour refreshing and sweet,
One blessed hour to sit at Jesus’ feet. [Chorus]

3 One blessed hour from labor to rest,
One blessed hour to lean on His breast;
Loving and loved, His favor to share,
One blessed hour of soul reviving pray'r. [Chorus]

4 One blessed hour with Jesus our King,
One blessed hour to speak and to sing;
One blessed hour with Jesus, how dear!
Surely ’tis Heav’n, and Heav’n itself is here. [Chorus]
