236. Lord, for Tomorrow

1 Lord, for tomorrow and its needs
I do not pray;
Keep me, my God, from stain of sin,
Just for today.
Help me to labor earnestly
And duly pray;
Let me be kind in word and deed,
Father, today.

2 Let me be slow to do my will,
Prompt to obey;
Help me to sacrifice myself,
Father, today.
Let me no wrong or idle word
Unthinking say;
Set Thou a seal upon my lips
Through all today.

3 Let me in season, Lord, be grave,
In season, gay;
Let me be faithful to thy grace,
Father, today.
Lord, for tomorrow and its needs
I do not pray;
Still keep me, guide me, love me, Lord,
Through all today.

Amen.
