from the Church of England Magazine, February, 1838
Lord of my life, whose tender care|
Hath led me on till now,
Here lowly, at the hour of prayer,
Before Thy throne I bow.
I bless Thy gracious hand and pray
Forgiveness for another day.
2. Oh, may I daily, hourly, strive|
In heavenly grave to grow,
To Thee and to Thy glory live,
Deal to all else below!
Tread in the path my Savior trod,
Though thorny, yet the path of God.
3. With prayer my humble praise I bring|
For mercies day by day.
Lord, teach my heart Thy love to sing;
Lord, teach me how to pray.
All that I have and am, to Thee
I offer through eternity.
