488. L. M. Christian Psalmist. Prayer for Divine Help.
1 Be with me, Lord, where'er I go;
Teach me what thou wouldst have me do;
Show me my weakness, -- let me see
I have my power, my all from thee.
2 Enrich me always with thy love;
My kind protection ever prove;
Thy signet put upon my breast,
And let thy spirit on me rest.
3 Assist and teach me how to pray;
Incline my nature to obey;
What thou abhorr'st that let me flee,
And only love what pleases thee.
4 O may I never do my will,
But thine, and only thine, fulfil;
Let all my time and all my ways
Be spent and ended to thy praise.
