1 O Lord, who hast my place assigned
And made my duties plain,
Grant for my work a ready mind,
My wayward tho'ts restrain.
2 Let me in Thy most holy name
My daily task pursue;
Thy glory be my only aim
In all I think and do.
3 May I submissive to Thy will
In all my calling be,
And let me as Thy servant still
Be faithful found to Thee.
4 Thy goodness all my life has crowned
And all my wants supplied;
O let that goodness still abound,
And daily bread provide.
5 Be Thou my Guide in all my ways,
From every ill defend;
And may my songs of daily praise
In grateful joy ascend.
6 May I in faith still stronger grow
While here I toil in love;
And when my work is done below,
Give me sweet rest above.
