Words (1838) by George Perkins Morris (1802-1864)


1.  Searcher of hearts, from mine erase

All thoughts that should not be,

And in its deep recesses trace

My gratitude to Thee.

2.  Hearer of prayer, O guide aright,

Each word and deed of mine;

Life’s battle teach me how to fight,

And be the victory Thine.

3.  Giver of all–for every good

In the Redeemer came–

For raiment, shelter, and for food,

I thank Thee in His Name.

4.  Father, and Son, and Holy Ghost,

Thou glorious Three in One,

Thou knowest best what I need most,

And let Thy will be done.
