Hymn/Song Information

Lord of my life O may thy praise Employ




Lord of my life! O may thy praise
Employ my noblest powers,
Whose goodness lengthens out my days,
And fills the circling hours!


Preserved by thy almighty arm,
I pass the shades of night,
Serene, and safe from every harm,
And see returning light.


When sleep, death’s semblace, o’er me spread,
And I unconscious lay,
Thy watchful care was round my bed,
To guard my feeble clay.


O let the same almighty care
My waking hours attend;
From every danger, every snare,
my heedless steps defend.


Smile on my minutes as they roll,
And guide my future days;
And let thy goodness fill my soul
With gratitude and praise.
