Words (1890) by Edwin Pond Parker (1836-1920), U.S. Congregationalist pastor in Hartford, Connecticut



1.  Lord, as we Thy Name profess,

May our hearts Thy love confess,

And in all our praise of Thee

May our lips and lives agree.

2.  Make us resolute to do

What Thou showest to be true;

Make us hate and shun the ill,

Loyal to Thy holy will.

3.  May Thy yoke be meekly worn,

May Thy cross be bravely borne;

Make us patient, gentle, kind,

Pure in life and heart and mind.

4.  Gracious Saviour, heav’nly Friend,

On Thy grace our souls depend;

Let that grace our needs supply

While we live and when we die.
