Representative Text

1 I ask, O Lord, in simple faith
This one request of Thee,
That, consecrated to Thy work,
My life henceforth may be;
O teach me how the lost to win,
Poor wand’ring souls to seek,
Direct my footsteps where to go
And give me words to speak.

2 O grant me strength to labor still,
Where’er Thou bid’st me toil,
To persevere with cheerful heart
Tho’ rough may be the soil;
If called to suffer for Thy sake,
O let me not repine,
But follow where my duty leads,
And have no will but Thine.

3 Thy blessed Spirit may I show,
Thy pure, unselfish love;
And thro’ Thy grace some wan’rer guide
To life and peace above;
To watch and wait and work for Thee,
Be this my constant care;
O grant me access to Thy throne,
Thro’ humble, grateful prayer.
