1. Communion with my Father,
In calm and quiet hour,
Is sweet and rich in blessings,
And Spirit’s gracious power;
He speaks in tones so gentle,
He hears my humblest prayer,
In secret of His presence
I feel my Father’s care.

O Father, Spirit, Savior,
Fill us with Thine own power;
O, lead Thy loving children
To seek the quiet hour.

2. When storms are fierce about me,
And sorrow’s billows roll,
I hear the Master gently
Speak peace unto my soul;
When heart is sore with anguish,
And eyes are dim with tears,
A quiet hour with Jesus
Will banish pain and fears. [Refrain]

3. Oh, leave life’s noise and turmoil,
And seek the quiet hour,
That He who sees in secret
May give thee spirit-power;
There find your strength in weakness,
And gird your armor on,
Then forth to life’s great conflict
Till victory is won. [Refrain]
