Representative Text

1 O for a humbler walk with God!
Lord, bend this stubborn heart of mine;
Subdue each rising, rebel thought,
And all my will conform to thine.

2 O for a holier walk with God!
A heart from all pollution free;
Expel, O Lord, each sinful love,
And fill my soul with love to thee.

3 O for a nearer walk with God!
Lord, turn my wandering heart to thee;
Help me to live by faith in him
Who lived and died and rose for me.

4 Lord, send thy Spirit from above
With light and love and power divine;
And by his all-constraining grace
Make me and keep me ever thine.
