C. A. Bernstein


O PATIENT, spotless One,

Our hearts in meekness train,

To bear Thy yoke and learn of Thee,

That we may rest obtain.


Saviour, Thou art enough

The mind and heart to fill;

Thy life to calm the anxious soul,

Thy love its fear dispel.


O fix our earnest gaze,

So wholly, Lord, on Thee,

That with Thy beauty occupied,

We elsewhere none may see.
