Keep me every day

Full Text

1 Lord, I want to live for Thee,
Ev’ry day and hour;
Let Thy spirit be with me,
In its saving pow’r!

Keep my heart, and keep my hand,
Keep my soul, I pray!
Keep my tongue to speak thy praise,
Keep me all the way!

2 In my weakness be my strength;
In my trials all,
Be Thou near me all the day,
Hear my ev’ry call! [Refrain]

3 Leave me not to walk alone,
Lest I faint and die;
Let Thy spirit go with me,
And attend my cry! [Refrain]
