Bless This Hour of Prayer ~ Hymn

 

Bless This Hour of Prayer

Come in our midst, O gracious Lord,
Unveil Thy smiling face,
Distil in every waiting heart,
The dew of heavenly grace;
From earthly scenes we turn aside,
On Thee we cast our care;
We worship in Thy holy Name;
O! bless this hour of prayer.

Come in our midst, O gracious Lord,
Thy promise we believe,
That bids us seek and we shall find,
Ask and we shall receive;
We gather at Thy mercy seat,
Our only hope is there,
We plead the merits of Thy blood;
O! bless this hour of prayer.

Come in our midst, O gracious Lord,
Eternal King of kings,
And fold the children of the law
Beneath Thy mighty wings;
Support the weak, the mourner cheer,
Help all their cross to bear;
Thou Spring of joy, Thou Source of life,
O! bless this hour of prayer.

  1. Great words in this hymn. I don’t know the tune, so I made one up to sing it to myself. Since it is a Fanny Crosby song, I’m sure the tune is in a song/hymn book somewhere.

  2. Fanny Crosby had to have been one of the greatest hymn writers or her time…our time too!!!

    I hope you have a very blessed Sunday Ellen B.

    Are the fires affecting you over there? Jimmy just read on the internet that all of Pasadena, Altadena, Glendale and a few others are having mandatory evacuations. I know your not close, but your closer then me.

    God bless,

    • We’re just getting the overcast, smokey skies. We are far from the actual fires probably about 35 minutes by freeway…

  3. Hi Ellen B., I’m a pain in the tukus aren’t I? I need to start subscribing to the comments. Anyway, we can’t smell them here, but yesterday I was in Whittier all day and as I left in the evening I could smell them as if they were chasing me down the road.
    I’m staying indoors to. A good day to get some sewing done.

    Stay cool!

    xoxo Cori G.
