496. O Lord, Who Numberest All Our Days

1 O Lord, Who numberest all our days,
Who guardest us in all our ways,
In Whom we live, and move, and are,
Who knowest our needs and hearest prayer:

2 Endow all parents with Thy love,
And give them wisdom from above
To educate each child for Thee,
As Thy redeemed property.

3 Grant us and all our children grace
So here on earth to run our race
That we in heaven may meet and sing
Eternal praise to Thee, our King.
