1 O Lord, who hast my place assigned,
And made my duties plain,
Grant for my work a ready mind,
My wayward thoughts restrain.
2 Let me in Thy most holy name
My daily task pursue:
Thy glory be my only aim
In all I think and do.
3 May I submissive to Thy will
In all my calling be,
And let me as Thy servant still
Be faithful found to Thee.
4 Thy goodness all my life has crowned,
And all my wants supplied;
O let that goodness still aboud,
And daily bread provide.
5 Be Thou my guide in all my ways;
From every ill defend;
And may my songs of daily praise
In grateful joy ascend.
6 May I in faith still stronger grow,
While here I toil in love;
And when my work is done below,
Give me sweet rest above.
