One blessèd hour with Jesus our Lord,
One blessèd hour to feast on His Word;
One blessèd hour with Jesus apart,
One blessèd hour to calm the troubled heart.

Refrain

One sweet hour of holy, calm delight,
One sweet hour of tender, melting love;
One sweet hour, O precious Savior,
One sweet hour with Thee.

One blessèd hour with Jesus to plead,
One blessèd hour to tell Him our need;
One blessèd hour refreshing and sweet,
One blessèd hour to sit at Jesus’ feet.

Refrain

One blessèd hour from labor to rest,
One blessèd hour to lean on His breast;
Loving and loved, His favor to share,
One blessèd hour of soul reviving prayer.

Refrain

One blessèd hour with Jesus our king,
One blessèd hour to speak and to sing;
One blessèd hour with Jesus, how dear!
Surely ’tis Heav’n, and Heav’n itself is here.

Refrain
