Scripture and Prayer on Monday, February 15, 2021

Pastor David reads Hebrews 1 and offers a prayer from Daniel Alexander Payne:

Haste thee, haste thee, hour divine,
Joys ecstatic – bliss is thine.
And raptures from the throne above –
Sweeter those, than life to me,
When the world and cares to dlee;
And Jesus speaks, in tones of love,
O, time of prayer! O, hour divine! –
Ecstatic joys and peace are thine!

Fairer thou than sunny rays –
Holiest time of all my days!
O, hour of love and joy, draw nigh –
Spread my faith, these eagle wings –
Speed thee where the angels sing:
Where Jesus pleads my cause on high.
O, time of prayer! O, hour divine! –
Ecstatic joys and peace are thine!

Now is come the hour of prayer –
Lovely, precious Jesus, hear:
Stoop thou from thy throne above –
Bless me, bless me, Son of God!
Thy saving grace, thy dying love.
O, time of prayer! O, hour divine! –
Ecstatic joys and peace are thine!

O, Jesus, thou my portion art: –
Sun of my life – joy of my heart.
O, raptures! bliss – O, God of love!
Exalt my thoughts, my hopes, my soul,
Higher than where the planets roll –
Up to thy dazzling throne of love.
O, time of prayer! O, hour divine! –
Ecstatic joys and peace are thine!
