Have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer. Psalm 4:1
O heav’nly Father, hear my prayer,
Offered in faith to Thee;
In every trial that I bear,
Wilt Thou my refuge be?
Teach me to know and do Thy will,
And Thy commands obey;
Help me my duty to fulfill,
And trust Thee day by day.
Reclaim me when I go astray,
My sins and faults forgive;
And help me to Thy cause each day
Some humble service give.
Give me not wealth nor poverty,
Thy love to me impart;
This grant, whate’er my lot may be,
A wise, contented heart.
