1 None loves me, Father, with Thy love,
None else can meet such needs as mine;
O, grant me, as Thou shall approve,
All that befits a child of Thine!
From every doubt and fear release,
And give me confidence and peace.
2 Give me a faith shall never fail,
One that shall always work by love;
And then, whatever foes assail,
They shall but higher courage move
More boldly for the truth to strive,
And more by faith in Thee to live:
3 A heart, that, when my days are glad,
May never from Thy way decline,
And when the sky of life grows sad,
May still submit its will to Thine, --
A heart that loves to trust in Thee,
A patient heart, create in me!
