HYMN 791

(FE 825) 8s 4s 
“Hours of Prayer" - Act.3:1
Tune: “Oluwa orun on aye”

1.  MY God, is any hour so sweet

     me blush of morn to evening star 

     As that which calls me to Thy feet, 

     The hour of prayer.

2.  Blest be that tranquil hour of morn 

     And blest that hour at solemn eve, 

     When, on the wings of prayer upborne 

    The world I leave.

3. For then a day-spring shines on me 

    Brighter than morn’s eternal glow

    And richer dews descend from Thee 

    Than earth can know.

4.  Then is my strength by Thee renew'd 

     Then are my sins by Thee forgiven 

     Then dost Thou cheer my solitude 

     With hopes of heaven.

5.  No words can tell what blast relief 

     There for my every want I find

     What strength for warfare, balm for grief 

     What peace of mind.

6.  Hush’d every doubt: gone every fear 

     My spirit seems in heaven to stay 

     And ev’n the penitential tear

     Is wiped away.

7.  Lord, till I reach the blissful shore, 

     No privilege so dear shall be

     As thus my inmost soul to pour

     ln prayer to Thee.  Amen
