1 Jesus, hear me when I pray,
Keep and guide me all the day;
Save from fear and care of sin,
Keep me pure and strong within.

Where I am and what I do,
Keep me faithful, keep me true;
Where I am and what I do,
Keep me faithful, keep me true.

2 Hear me when I pray for light,
Fill me with Thy glory bright;
Save from envy thro’ the day,
Love, protect me all the way. [Refrain]

3 Hear me when to Thee I call,
When the clouds of darkness fall;
Let me hear Thy tender voice,
That with Thee I may rejoice. [Refrain]

4 Jesus, hear me, I am Thine;
Give to me Thy love divine;
Teach me how to walk with Thee,
In Thy love I would be free. [Refrain]
