1 O grant Thy servants, thro' Thy grace,
An understanding heart,
Thy dealings with Thy Church to trace,
And counsel to impart.
2 With heav'nly wisdom us endow;
Thy peace, O may we feel;
A ready mind on us bestow,
To do Thy holy will.
3 Thus, by Thy gracious Spirit blest,
Supported by Thy aid,
And wholly of Thy will possessed,
All in Thy path proceed.
