Lyrics
SWEET HOUR OF PRAYER
Words by William W. Walford
Music by William B Bradbury

Sweet (C)hour of prayer! sweet (F)hour of prayer!
That (C)calls me from a (G)world of care,
And (C)bids me at my (C)Father’s throne
Make (C)all my wants and (C/G)wish(G7)es (C)known.
In (C)sea(G7/D)sons (C/E)of (F)dis(C)tress and grief,
My soul (G7)has (C)oft(F)en (C)found re(G)lief
And (C)oft escaped the (F)tempter’s snare
By (C)thy return, sweet (C/G)hour (G7)of (C)prayer!


Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
The joys I feel, the bliss I share,
Of those whose anxious spirits burn
With strong desires for thy return!
With such I hasten to the place
Where God my Savior shows His face,
And gladly take my station there,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!


Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
Thy wings shall my petition bear
To Him whose truth and faithfulness
Engage the waiting soul to bless.
And since He bids me seek His face,
Believe His Word and trust His grace,
I’ll cast on Him my every care,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!


Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
May I thy consolation share,
Till, from Mount Pisgah’s lofty height,
I view my home and take my flight:
This robe of flesh I’ll drop and rise
To seize the everlasting prize;
And shout, while passing through the air,
“Farewell, farewell, sweet hour of prayer!”
