24. Lord of My Life, Whose Tender Care

1 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 heav'nly grace to grow,
To Thee and to Thy glory live,
Dead to all else below!
Tread in the path my Savior trod,
Tho' 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 thro' eternity.

Amen.
