8683. Vouchsafe, O Lord,Thy Presence Now

1 Vouchsafe, O Lord, Thy presence now,
Direct us in Thy fear;
Before Thy throne we humbly bow,
And offer fervent prayer.

2 Give us the men whom Thou shalt choose,
Thy house on earth to guide;
Those who shall ne’er their power abuse,
Or rule with haughty pride.

3 Inspired with wisdom from above,
And with discretion blest;
Displaying meekness, temperance, love,
Of every grace possessed.

4 These are the men we seek of Thee,
O God of righteousness;
Such may our deacons ever be,
With such Thy people blest.
