  D          Dsus4 D7      G                     
1 Sweet hour of    prayer! Sweet hour of prayer! 
2 Sweet hour of    prayer! Sweet hour of prayer! 
3 Sweet hour of    prayer! Sweet hour of prayer! 

       D               A     Asus4   A
1 That calls me from a world of      care,
2 Thy  wings shall my  pe   -ti-tion bear
3 May  I thy con    -  sol  -la-tion share,

  A   D    Dsus4 D7    G                   
1 And bids me    at my Fa-ther's throne 
2 To Him whose trugh and faith-ful-ness 
3 Till, from Mount Pis-gah's sloft-y height, 

       D          Dsus2 D        A  D
1 Make all my wants     and wish-es known;
2 En  -gage the wait   -ing soul to bless;
3 I    view my home,    and take my flight:

  D      Dsus2 D  G   D                      
1 In sea-sons  of dis-tress and grief, 
2 And since He bids me seek His face, 
3 This robe of flesh I'll drop, and 

           Dsus2 D    G   D       A ->A7
1 My soul  has   of  -ten found   re-lief,
2 Be-leive His   Word and trust   His grace,
3 rise to  seize the  ev- er-last-ing prize;

  D       Dsus2 D         G                   
1 And oft es   -caped the tempt-er's snare 
2 I'll cast on Him my ev-'ry care, 
3 And shout, while pass-ing thru the air, 

        D          Dsus2   D          A  D
1 By    thy re    -turn,   sweet hour of prayer.
2 And   wait for   thee,   sweet hour of prayer.
3 "Fare-well, fare-well    sweet hour of prayer."
