O What Songs Of the Heart

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!

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!

Thank you Sister Johnson for turning my thoughts to this wonderful hymn. Although mine is not regularly an hour, I do consider my time spent in prayer as the sweetest of the day. This morning as I "spiritually created" my day with Heavenly Father, I was overcome with gratitude of being able to do just that.
