389. Purer in Heart, O God

1 Purer in heart, O God,
Help me to be;
May I devote my life
Wholly to Thee:
Watch Thou my wayward feet,
Guide me with counsel sweet;
Purer in heart
Help me to be.

2 Purer in heart, O God,
Help me to be;
Teach me to do Thy will
Most lovingly:
Be Thou my friend and guide,
Let me with Thee abide;
Purer in heart
Help me to be.

3 Purer in heart, O God,
Help me to be;
Until Thy holy face
One day I see:
Keep me from secret sin,
Reign Thou my soul within;
Purer in heart
Help me to be.
