Jesus, my strength, my hope

Jesus, my strength, my hope,
on you I cast my care,
with humble confidence look up
and know you hear my prayer.
On you alone I wait
till I can all things do;
on you, almighty to create,
almighty to renew.

2. Give me a godly fear,
a quick-discerning eye,
that looks to you when sin is near
and sees the tempter fly;
a spirit well-prepared
and armed with zealous care,
for ever standing on its guard
and keeping watch in prayer.

3. Give me a true regard,
a single, steady aim,
unmoved by threatening or reward,
for you and your great name;
a jealous, just concern
for your immortal praise;
a pure desire that all may learn
and glorify your grace.

4. I rest upon your word;
the promise is for me;
my strength and my salvation, Lord,
from you alone shall be:
but let me still abide,
nor from my hope remove,
till you my steadfast spirit guide
into your perfect love.
