Sweet Hour of Prayer

Sweet Hour of Prayer (acapella). This 19th century hymn began as a poem by William Walford circa 1845. Eventually it was set to music by William Bradbury around 1861. We like it because it’s a peaceful invitation to step back from “seasons of distress and grief” for a “Sweet Hour of Prayer.” And yes, we sang it in a bathtub. Acoustics.

Sweet Hour of Prayer
Sweet hour of prayer
That calls me from a world of care
And bids me at my Father's Throne
Makes 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
Sweet Hour of Prayer
Sweet hour of prayer
Thy wings shall my petition bear
To him whose truth and faithfulness
And gauge the waiting soul to bless
And since he bids me seek his face
Believe his word and trust his grace
I'll cast on him my every care
And wait for thee 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
And wait for thee sweet hour of prayer

Journey from the city to farm country and back again through folk and country music, hilarious stories, soaring harmonies, and a wry view of the folks back home with Elizabeth Morgan's She's Folks! With our signature Story, Song, and Sass, we narratively travel our native Midwestern byways, railroads, and fields by truck, train and tractor, introducing the audience to original tunes, as well as beloved folk songs, covers, and hymns. She's Folks! is a love letter to the country from a kid who couldn't wait to leave. Where do we belong if we walk away? We reckon, "Home isn't the place; it's the folks."
Keep up with the folks!
