PRAYER. 483

2 "Give us a calm, a thankful heart,

From every murmur free;
The blessings of thy grace impart,
And make us live to th^e.

3 "Let the sweet hope, that we are thine,

Our life and death attend; < Thy presence througk our journey shine,

mf And crown our journey's end."

435

HYMN 435, C. M.

Seeking God.

AUTHOR of good! to thee we turn;
Thine ever-wakeful eye
Alone can all our wants discern,—
Thy hand alone supply.

Oh! let thy love within us dwell,
Thy fear our footsteps guide;

That love shall vainer loves expel,—
That fear, all fears beside.

Not what we wish—but what we want,

Let mercy still supply;
The good we ask not, Father! grant;

The ill we ask—deny.

HYMN 436, CM.

Prayer for Wisdom.

m 1 A LMIGHTY God! in humble prayer,
•**• To thee our souls we lift;
Do thou our waiting minds prepare
For thy most needful gift.

2 We ask not golden streams of wealth,

Along our path to flow;
¥e ask not undecaying health,
Nor length of years below:—

3 "We ask not honors, which an hour

May bring and take away; < We ask not pleasure, pomp, and power,

> Lest we should go astray:—

— 4 We ask for wisdom;—Lord! impart
The knowledge how to live;
A wise and understanding heart,
To all thy servants give;—

5 The young—remember thee in youth,
Before the evil days!
The old—be guided by thy truth,
In wisdom's pleasant ways!
