1 Lord of my life, whose tender care
Has led me on till now,
Here lowly, at the hour of prayer,
Before your throne I bow.
I bless your gracious hand and pray
Forgiveness for another day.
2 Oh, may I daily, hourly, strive
In heav'nly grace to grow,
To you and to your glory live,
Dead to all else below!
Tread in the path my Savior trod,
Though thorny, yet the path of God.
3 To you my humble praise I bring
For mercies day by day.
Lord, teach my heart your love to sing;
Lord, teach me how to pray.
All that I have and e'er can do
I'll use to serve and honor you.

Lord of my [our] life, Whose tender care. [Evening.] This hymn appeared in the Church of England Magazine, February, 1838, and was signed "Ώ Chelsea." It was included in the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge Hymns for Public Worship, 1852, No. 156; and since then it has passed into a large number of hymn-books in G. Britain and America, and sometimes as “Lord of our life," &c, as in Kennedy, 1863. [William T. Brooke]
