SCRIPTURAL PRAYERS




With wandering Jacob, let us say —
“If God will keep me by the way,
Guide and defend me, clothe and feed,
Then God shall be my God indeed.”


With him who led the ransomed flock
Through the Red Sea to Sinai’s rock,
Be this our one supreme request,
“Thy presence with us go or rest.”


Joy we God’s people from our youth,
Quit the vain world like humble Ruth;
With them resolved our lot to try,
Rejoice or suffer, love or die.


Like Joshua through this war of life,
Victor in many a deadly strife,
May each this solemn pledge record,
“I am my house will serve the Lord.”


When prayers and vows to heaven we make,
The words of Solomon we’ll take,
Freely for every blessing call,
Yet ask forgiveness with them all.


And now, O Lord our God! to thee
This sum of our petition be,
The language of thy blessed Son,
“Father! thy will, not mine, be done.”
