PLEASE NOTE - ONLY THE CHORUS IS IN OUR HYMNAL

          'Tis the blessed hour of prayer, when our hearts lowly bend,
          And we gather to Jesus, our Savior and Friend;
          If we come to Him in faith, His protection to share,
          What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!

            Chorus
            Blessed hour of prayer, blessed hour of prayer,
            What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!

          'Tis the blessed hour of prayer, when the Savior draws near,
          With a tender compassion His children to hear;
          When He tells us we may cast at His feet every care,
          What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!

            Chorus
            Blessed hour of prayer, blessed hour of prayer,
            What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!

          'Tis the blessed hour of prayer, when the tempted and tried
          To the Savior who loves them their sorrow confide;
          With a sympathizing heart He removes every care;
          What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!

            Chorus
            Blessed hour of prayer, blessed hour of prayer,
            What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!

          At the blessed hour of prayer, trusting Him, we believe
          That the blessing we're needing we'll surely receive;
          In the fullness of the trust we shall lose every care;
          What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!

            Chorus
            Blessed hour of prayer, blessed hour of prayer,
            What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!
