Every day we have to face

So much we can’t erase

It’s a battle and a race

My call on the Lord is what I trace.


Such a delight to know

And remember his love so

To write it down makes me grow

As I come and go.


Tempted on the left and right

Oh, to keep my Lord in sight

While heartache brings on the night

Many are taking flight.


Keep me true, my God

Through the fire and the rod

For thou has suffered on this sod

Where unmoved love has trod.


Grant us this Thy strength

While this time is over length

Cut it short as thou has spoken

Jesus promised His great token.


Dear tender Jesus kind and true

Will get us all the way through

He will do it just for you

To save and make all things new.
