1 O help us, Lord! each hour of need
Thy heavenly succor give:
Help us in thought, and word, and deed,
Each hour on earth we live.
2 O help us when our spirits bleed,
With contrite anguish sore;
And when our hearts are cold and dead,
O help us, Lord, the more.
3 O help us, through the prayer of faith,
More firmly to believe;
For still, the more the servant hath,
The more shall he receive.
4 O help us, Jesus, from on high;
We know no help but Thee!
O help us so to live and die
As Thine in heaven to be!
