Page 285 - SWEET hour of prayer ! sweet hour of prayer ! That calls me from a world of care, And bids me, at my Father's throne, Make all my wants and wishes known : In seasons of distress and grief, My soul has often found relief, And oft escaped the tempter's snare, By thy return, sweet hour of prayer...

Glory be to God most high. 3 " Peace on earth, good-will from heaven, Reaching far as man is found ; Souls redeemed and sins forgiven ; — Loud our golden harps shall sound. 4 " Christ is born, the great Anointed, Heaven and earth his praises sing ! O receive whom God appointed For your Prophet, Priest, and King...
Page 13 - Give to the winds thy fears ; Hope, and be undismayed; God hears thy sighs and counts thy tears, God shall lift up thy head. Through waves and clouds and storms He gently clears thy way; Wait thou His time, so shall this night Soon end in joyous day.
Page 8 - Lord, it belongs not to my care Whether I die or live; To love and serve Thee is my share, And this Thy grace must give.
Page 280 - COME, Thou almighty King, Help us Thy name to sing, Help us to praise ; Father all glorious, O'er all victorious, Come and reign over us, Ancient of days.
