Give me O Christ the strength that is in




Give me, O Christ,
the strength that is in Thee,
That I may stand in every evil hour;
Faints my poor heart
except to Thee I flee,
Resting my weakness
in Thy perfect power.


Give me to see
the foes that I must fight,
Powers of the darkness,
throned where Thou shouldst reign,
Read the directings
of Thy wrath aright,
Lest, striking flesh and blood,
I strike in vain.


Give me to wear
the armour that can guard;
Over my breast
Thy blood-bought righteousness,
Faith for my shield,
when fiery darts rain hard,
Girded with truth,
and shod with zeal to bless.


Give me to wield
the weapon that is sure,
Taking, through prayer,
Thy sword into my hand,
Word of Thy wisdom,
peaceable and pure,
So, Christ my conqueror,
I shall conqueror stand. Amen.
