Representative Text

1 Lord and Saviour, true and kind,
Be the master of my mind;
Bless, and guide, and strengthen still
All my powers of thought and will.

2 While I ply the scholar's task,
Jesus Christ, be near, I ask;
Help the memory, clear the brain,
Knowledge still to seek and gain.

3 Here I train for life's swift race;
Let me do it in Thy grace:
Here I arm me for life's fight,
Let me do it in Thy might.

4 Thou hast made me mind and soul;
I for Thee would use the whole:
Thou hast died that I might live;
All my powers to Thee I give.

5 Striving, thinking, learning still,
Let me follow thus Thy will,
Till my whole glad nature be
Trained for duty and for Thee.
