773. Keep Me, My Lord

1 Keep me in touch with Thee,
My blessed Lord;
Thine shall the glory be,
Mine the reward;
Cover my soul with grace,
In that most holy place,
Till I shall see Thy face,
Keep me, my Lord.

2 Lord, with Thy gentleness,
I would be great;
Blest with Thy holiness,
Be this my state;
To Thee my all resign,
Oh, let Thy will be mine,
In Thy great love divine,
Keep me, my Lord.

3 Conquer my every foe,
While here I stay;
Unto the end I’ll go,
Let me not stray;
Down into nothingness,
Hid in Thy righteousness,
Firm in Thy faithfulness,
Keep me, my Lord.

4 Oh, let Thy watchful eye,
Be over me;
Hear Thou my humble cry,
Coming to Thee;
Guide Thou my steps aright,
Be Thou my song at night,
My theme and heart’s delight,
Keep me, my Lord.
