Hymn/Song Information

Vouchsafe to keep me Lord this day




Vouchsafe to keep me, Lord, this day
Without committing sin,
And with me let thy Spirit stay,
And ever dwell within.


Thou canst from every sin secure;
And is it not thy will
Still to preserve thy servant pure
From every touch of ill?


Thou canst, thou wilt for one short day
Preserve me spotless here,
And why not then (let Satan say)
A week, a month, a year?


Why wilt thou not for all my life
My helpless soul defend,
And bear me through the doubtful strife,
And keep me to the end!


Behold, with humble faith I bow
My soul before thy throne;
Deliver me from evil now,
For thou canst save thine own.


My soul on thee, O Lord, relies,
Thine arms are my defence,
My soul hell, earth, and sin defies
To come and pluck me thence.
