COMFORT IN PRAYER


When at times I feel discouraged,
and my soul is rent with fear,
When I need to be encouraged,
then I trust my Lord is near;
Just a pause in meditation
bowing with my Lord in prayer,
Fills my soul with inspiration,
lightens every earthly care.

If in weakness I may falter,
from the path perchance I stray,
Jesus meets me at the altar,
there to help me when I pray;
Heaven's pathway glows much brighter
when my load He helps to share,
And my burdens are much lighter
every time we meet in prayer.

Mortal friends may often fail me,
earthly joys may pass away,
But I know my Lord won't leave me,
when I pause with Him to pray;
With His heavenly admiration,
with a grace none can compare,
Seals anew our close relation
in the moments spent in prayer.

Not a price of earthly measure,
can repay the debt of love,
From the depths of Heaven's treasure,
filled with mercy from above;
Grant, dear Lord, I may not waver,
from the path may I not stray,
Keep me, Lord, within Thy favor,
in Thy grace, Lord, help me stay.

--A. W. Dicus

SWEET HOUR OF PRAYER



Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
That calls me from a world of care,
And bids me at my Fatherís throne
Make all my wants and wishes known.
In seasons of distress and grief,
My soul has often found relief
And oft escaped the tempterís snare
By thy return, sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
The joys I feel, the bliss I share,
Of those whose anxious spirits burn
With strong desires for thy return!
With such I hasten to the place
Where God my Savior shows His face,
And gladly take my station there,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!

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,
Iíll cast on Him my every care,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
May I thy consolation share,
Till, from Mount Pisgahís lofty height,
I view my home and take my flight:
This robe of flesh Iíll drop and rise
To seize the everlasting prize;
And shout, while passing through the air,
Farewell, farewell, sweet hour of prayer!

--William Walford
