about

Original hymn by William Walford & William Bradbury
Chorus by Justin Chow & Joannie Ing

lyrics

VERSE 1
Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer
That calls me from a world of care
And bids me at my Father’s throne, make all my wants and wishes known
In seasons of distress and grief, my soul has often found relief
And oft escaped the tempter’s snare by thy return, sweet hour of prayer

VERSE 2
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

CHORUS
I’m on my knees
Search my open heart, Lord I come to Thee
O God above, I know I’m unworthy
I’m at your feet
Reaching out for You, Jesus I believe
O God of love, Your grace I receive

VERSE 3
Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer
May I thy consolation bear
'Till from the mountain’s lofty heights, 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!”
