1 Almighty Lord of all!
Of life the only spring!
Creator of unnumber'd worlds!
Supreme, eternal King!

2 Preserve me from deceit,
Impenitence, and pride;
Nor let me in forbidden paths,
With thoughtless sinners, glide.

3 What thine unerring eye
Sees for thy creature fit:
I'll bless the good, and to the ill
Contentedly submit.

4 With pleasure let me view
The Prosp'rous and the great;
Malignant envy let me fly,
And odious selfconceit.

5 Let no despair, revenge,
Be to my bosom known:
Oh! give me tears for other's woes,
And patience for my own.

6 Feed me with needful food:
I ask not wealth or fame.
Give me an eye to see thy will,
A heart to bless thy name.

7 Still let my days be past
Without remorse or care;
And growing holiness my soul
For life's last hour prepare!
