BE with me, Lord, where’er I go;
   Teach me what Thou wouldst have me do;
Govern whate’er I think or say;
Direct me in the narrow way.
2  Work in me, lest I harbour pride,
Lest I in my own strength confide;
Show me my weakness, let me see
I have my power, my all, from Thee.
3  Assist and teach me how to pray;
Incline my nature to obey;
What Thou abhorrest let me flee,
And only love what pleases Thee.
John Cennick, 1718-55
