Lord of my life, Whose Tender Care
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.
