WANTS AND WISHES IN PRAYER




What shall we ask of God in prayer?
Whatever good we want;
Whatever man may seek to share,
And God in mercy grant.


Father of all our mercies, thou
In whom we move and live,
Hear us in heaven thy dwelling now,
And answer and forgive.


When, bound with sins and trespasses,
From wrath we fain would flee,
Lord, cancel our unrighteousness,
And set the captive free.


When, harassed by ten thousand foes,
Our helplessness we feel,
O give the weary soul repose,
The wounded spirit heal.


When dire temptations gather round,
And threaten or allure,
By storm or calm, in thee be found
A refuge strong and sure.


When age advances, may we grow
In faith, and hope, and love,
And walk in holiness below,
To holiness above.


When earthly joys and cares depart,
Desire and envy cease,
Be thou the portion of our heart,
In thee may we have peace.


When flames these elements destroy,
And worlds in judgment stand,
May we lift up our heads with joy,
And meet at thy right hand.


---Alternative verses---


What shall we ask of God in prayer?
Whatever good we want;
Whatever man may seek to share,
And God in wisdom grant.
