1 O the bliss of one sweet hour
When the heart forgets its care,
And the gently falling shower
Brings the joy of answered prayer;
O the happy, happy tears
Bursting forth like gems of light,
While the Father’s smile appears
As they sparkle warm and bright.

Refrain:
O the bliss of one sweet hour
When the heart forgets its care,
And the gently falling shower
Brings the joy of answered prayer.

2 When our songs of rapture swell,
And our souls in Christ are one,
When we meet His love to tell,
O ’tis Heaven on earth begun;
And we sigh and long to stay
With the friends we hold so dear,
But the moment glide away—
And our call they will not hear. [Refrain]

3 There’ll be more of rapture still
Than the heart has ever known
When we climb the towering hill
Leading upward to the throne;
Then beyond this fleeting shore,
And the stormy billows’ foam,
With the millions gone before
We shall meet and rest at home. [Refrain]
