R.J Lyon

GIVE me, Lord, Thy Holy Spirit;

Sanctify me by Thy grace;

Guard me, guide me, help me onward

As I run my heavenward race.


Keep me humble, loyal, faithful,

True to Christ, my King and Lord;

Daily bless to my refreshment

Some sweet promise of Thy Word.


Oh, be near me, blessed Saviour,

Fill me with Thy Spirit’s grace;

Help me to reflect Thy glory;

Fit me to behold Thy face.


Ever let Thine hand sustain me,

Sheltered by Thy perfect love;

Finish Thine own work, and bring me

Home to rest with Thee above.
