CHRISTIAN WARFARE AND FAITH UNDER TRIALS.
364 SWEET HOUR OF PRAYER. L. M. wm. b. bradbury;
I. Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer! That calls me from a world of care;
D.C.—And oft es-caped the temp-ter's snare By thy re-turn, sweet hour of prayer;,
me at my Fa-ther's throne Make all my wants and wish-es known,.
And oft es - caped the temp - ter's snare By thy re - turn, sweet hour of prayer.

In sea sons of dis - tress and grief, My soul has oft - en found re lief,
2 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!
3 Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
May I thy consolation share;
Till from Mount Pisgah's lofty height,
I view my home, and take my flight;
This robe of flesh I'll drop, and rise
To seize the everlasting prize;
And shout, while passing through the air,
Farewell, farewell, sweet hour of prayer.
