1 Lord of my life! oh, may Thy praise
Employ my noblest powers,
Whose goodness lengthens out my days,
And fills the circling hours!
2 Preserved by Thine Almighty arm,
I pass the shades of night,
Serene and safe from every harm,
And see returning light.
3 Oh, let the same Almighty care
My waking hours attend:
From every trespass, every snare,
My heedless steps defend.
4 Smile on my minutes as they roll,
And guide my future days;
And let Thy goodness fill my soul
With gratitude and praise.
