Adoration Hour

Sweetest hour of earth I have known
Spent in gentle quiet prayer.
Precious time dipping from Heaven's well
Spent with Christ kneeling there.
No other moment seems to last
Nor feed my soul with sweeter bread.
Christ does hold my heart at peace
And bids me empty my pounding head.
The world waits at those doors
On this it dare not intrude.
God holds strife at bay
And permits nothing foul or rude.
Would that I could stay forever
But I carry it always inside.
And I know one day I will remain
Forever in my Savior's Heart to hide.
