1 ‘Tis the hallowed hour of prayer,
And we trustingly bring
All our doubting and our fears,
To our Saviour and King;
For we know that He delights
A glad welcome to give,
And the blessings that we ask for
We shall fully receive.
Precious hour of pray’r!
Hallowed hour of pray’r!
Sacred season of communion,
It is sweet to be there!
2 ‘Tis the precious hour of prayer,
And we humbly entreat:
Father breathe the Spirit now.
As we bow at Thy feet;
Touch our lips with power of song;
Fill our souls with Thy love,
And bestow the benediction
Of Thy peace from above. [Refrain]
3 ‘Tis the sacred hour of prayer,
Calm as heaven above;
Soul to soul is breathing here
The communion of love;
Ev’ry heart is sweetly filled
With a peace most profound;
Oh, the place is like to heaven
Where such true joys abound. [Refrain]
