                              THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. Lord of my life, whose tender care
        Hath led me on till now,
        Here lowly, at the hour of prayer,
        Before Thy throne I bow.
        I bless Thy gracious hand and pray
        Forgiveness for another day.

        2. Oh, may I daily, hourly, strive
        In heavenly grace to grow,
        To Thee and to Thy glory live,
        Dead to all else below!
        Tread in the path my Savior trod,
        Though thorny, yet the path of God.

        3. With prayer my humble praise I bring
        For mercies day by day.
        Lord, teach my heart Thy love to sing;
        Lord, teach me how to pray.
        All that I have and am, to Thee
        I offer through eternity.
