Scripture: Ephesians 2:10
1 O God, my faithful God, True fountain ever flowing,
Without whom nothing is, All perfect gifts bestowing:
Give me a healthy frame, And may I have within
A conscience free from blame, A soul unstained by sin.
2 Give me the strength to do With ready heart and willing
Whatever you command, My calling here fulfilling.
To do it when I ought, With all my strength and bless
Whatever I have wrought, For you must give success.
3 Keep me from saying words That later need recalling;
Guard me, lest idle speech May from my lips be falling;
But when, within my place, I must and ought to speak,
Then to my words give grace, Lest I offend the weak.
4 When dangers gather round, O keep me calm and fearless;
Help me to bear the cross When life seems dark and cheerless;
Help me, as you have taught, To love both great and small,
And by your Spirit's might, To live at peace with all.
