I need the influence of your grace
to speed me in your way,
lest I should loiter in my race,
or turn my feet astray.
And I shall love your gospel more,
and not forget your word,
for I have felt its quickening power
that draws me near my Lord.
When sore afflictions press me down,
I need your quickening powers;
your word, that I have rested on,
shall ease my heaviest hours. [Refrain]
Are not your mercies sovereign still,
and you a faithful God?
Will you not grant me stronger zeal
to run your heavenly road? [Refrain]
