1 Be present with your servants, Lord,
we look to you with one accord;
refresh and strengthen us anew,
and bless what in your name we do.
2 O teach us all your perfect will
to understand and to fulfill;
when human insight fails, give light;
this will direct our steps aright.
3 The Lord’s joy be our strength and stay
in our employ from day to day;
our thoughts and our activity
through Jesus’ merits hallowed be.
