Sweet Hour Of Prayer

      D                     G
Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer,
     D               A
That calls me from a world of care,
    D             G
And bids me at my Fa-ther’s throne,
     D                A7     D
Make all my wants and wishes known…
   D           G   D
In sea-sons of dis-tress and grief,
   D        G      D        A7
My soul has of-ten found re-lief,
    D      (D7)      G              
And oft es-caped the tempt-er’s snare
   D                   A       D
By they re-turn, sweet hour of prayer.

      D                     G
Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer,
    D                    A
Thy wings shall my pe-ti-tion bear
   D                   G
To him whose truth and faith-ful-ness
   D                 A7      D
En-gage the wait-ing soul to bless
    D        G       A7
And since he bids me seek his face,
   D         G         D         A7
Be-lieve his word, and trust his grace
     D       (D7)   G
I’ll cast on him my ev-ery care,
    D                    A       D
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer.
