Representative Text

1 There is no sweeter time than this,
The hour we spend with Jesus;
We taste with him eternal bliss,
The hour we spend with Jesus;
We feel his presence and we know
His love will never let us go,
We drop our burden and our woe,
The hour we spend with Jesus.

Refrain:
The hour we spend with Jesus,
How precious and how sweet;
To drop our care and leave it there,
And dwell in him complete.

2 We hear his voice in mercy plead,
The hour we spend with Jesus;
He shows each heart its greatest need,
The hour we spend with Jesus;
What peace we find, what comfort sweet,
When gathered ‘round his mercy-seat,
There pardon and compassion meet,
The hour we spend with Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Redeeming love our theme shall be,
The hour we spend with Jesus;
Renewed by grace divine are we,
The hour we spend with Jesus;
O wondrous love, O sacred hour!
The clouds of sin no longer low’r;
We feel the Spirit’s quick’ning pow’r,
The hour we spend with Jesus. [Refrain]
