1 O gracious Father, condescend
To hear our fervent prayer,
While this our brother we commend
To Thy paternal care.
2 Before him set an open door;
His various efforts bless;
On him Thy Holy Spirit pour,
And crown him with success.
3 Endow him with a heavenly mind;
Supply his every need;
Make him in spirit meek, resigned,
But hold in word and deed.
4 In every tempting, trying hour,
Uphold him by Thy grace;
And guard him by Thy mighty power,
Till he shall end his race.
