Words (1754) by John Gambold, Sr. (1711-1771)


1.  O grant Thy servants, through Thy grace,

An understanding heart,

Thy dealings with Thy Church to trace,

And counsel to impart.

2.  With heavenly wisdom us endow,

Thy peace O may we feel;

Presence of mind on us bestow,

To execute Thy will.

3.  Thus, strengthened in the inner man,

Supported by Thy aid,

We shall Thy gracious aim obtain,

And in Thy path proceed.
