Thou Who Art Over Us

Thou who art over us,
Thou who art one of us,
Thou who art, Also within us.
May all see Thee-in me also,
May I prepare the way for Thee,
May I thank Thee for all that shall fall to my lot,
May I also not forget the needs of others,
Keep me in Thy love As Thou wouldest that all should be kept in mine.
May everything in this my being be directed to Thy glory And may I never despair.
For I am under Thy hand, And in Thee is all power and goodness.
Give me a pure heart that I may see Thee, A humble heart that I may hear Thee,
A heart of love that I may serve Thee, A heart of faith that I may abide in Thee.
