Comfort of the Spirit - Ye Olde Prayers series (20)

orchidee



Tune: Melcombe

(New every morning is the love')

Based on a prayer of Thomas á Kempis (15th Century)

*********

Write your blessed name, Lord, on my heart

There to be yours in every part

To be graven indelibly

Your presence there eternally

 

So that no prosperity move

Nor adversity, from your love

Be unto me a strong tower

Of defence from perils each hour

 

Be comfort in tribulation

Save me from distresses, each one

A true present help in trouble

A guide to heaven through life all

 

Be my comfort and guard, for see

Many temptations here there be

And dangers, keep me, see me through

So shall I praise, glorify you
