Representative Text

1 I my Ebenezer raise
To my kind Redeemr's praise;
With a grateful heart I own
Hitherto thy help I've known.

2 I my all to thee resign;
Father, let thy will be mine;
May but all thy dealings prove
Fruits of thy paternal love.

3 Let my few remaining days
Be directed to thy praise;
So the last, the closing scene,
Shall be tranquil and serene.

4 To thy will I leave the rest;
Grant me but this one request--
Both in life and death to prove
Tokens of thy special love.
