Full Text

1 I am thy workmanship, O Lord!
And unto thee belong;
Thou art my Shield, my great Reward,
My Glory, and my Song.

2 Surround me with thy guardian might;
Uphold me with thy grace;
Unharmed, conduct me through the fight,
Unwearied, through the race.

3 Make me a weapon of thy power,
An angel of thy will;
To thee devoted, let each hour
Its happy task fulfill.

4 Yet dare not I, a child of dust,
Thus plead my filial claim,
But as in him is all my trust,
Who bears a Saviour's name.
