Welcome Hour Of Solemn Meeting

Welcome hour of solemn meeting,
Welcome hour of praise and prayer,
Far from earthly scenes retreating,
In your blessings we would share.

Be thou near us, blessed Savior,
Still at morn and eve the same;
Give us faith that cannot waver;
Kindle in us heaven’s own flame.

When the fervent heart is glowing,
Holy spirit, her that prayer;
When the song of praise is flowing,
Let that song thine impress bear,
