Almighty Maker of my frame Teach me the




Almighty Maker of my frame!
Teach me the measure of my days,
Teach me to know how frail I am,
And spend the remnant in Thy praise.


My days are shorter than a span,
A little point my life appears;
How frail at best is dying man!
How vain are all his hopes and fears!


Vain his ambition, noise and show;
Vain are the cares which rack his mind;
He heaps up treasures mixed with woe,
And dies and leaves them all behind.


O be a nobler portion mine!
My God, I bow before Thy throne;
Earth’s fleeting treasures I resign,
And fix my hope on Thee alone.

Almighty Maker of my frame,
Teach me the measure of my days
Teach me to know how frail I am,
To spend the remnant to thy praise.


O be a heavenly portion mine!
My God, I bow before thy throne;
Earth's fleeting treasure I resign,
And fix my hope on thee alone.
