Representative Text

1 There’s an hour that comes like a healing balm,
When evening shades are falling,
And we lay our cares at the Saviour’s feet,
His gift of grace recalling.

Refrain:
Lovingly now, fervently bow,
Welcome this hour of holy calm so sweet;
Lovingly now, fervently bow,
Breathing the pray’r of faith at Jesus’ feet.

2 ‘Tis the hour of pray’r that renews our strength,
Makes Christian duty clearer,
‘Tis the hour of pray’r and its pow’r that draws
Our heav’nly home still nearer. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis the pray’r of faith that dispels our clouds,
Gives joy beyond expression,
For it fills our hearts and it crowns our lives
With all that’s worth possessing. [Refrain]
