1 O Lord and leader of our needy race,
Help us to gain Thy beauty and Thy grace;
Make us more nearly
Like Thyself, we pray,
And mold us in
Thine image day by day.
2 Come and dwell in us with Thy radiant power;
Shine thro’ our life in every fleeting hour;
Speak through our lips;
May we be filled with Thee,
That all in us
The loving Christ may see.
3 May we be Christlike in our love of truth,
Christlike in service, helping age and youth;
More like our Master,
Bearing pain or loss,
Glad in God’s will
E’en tho’ it bring a cross.
4 Come, blessèd Savior, master every heart,
To longing souls Thy peace and power impart;
And when at last
Thy glory we shall see,
Crowned with Thy strength
And beauty may we be.Source: The Cyber Hymnal #9116
