Lord and Saviour, true and kind
Lord and saviour, true and kind,
be the Master of my mind;
bless and guide and strengthen still
all my powers of thought and will.
2. While I face the scholar’s task,
Jesus Christ, be near, I ask;
help the memory, clear the brain,
knowledge to pursue and gain.
3. As I train for life’s swift race;
let me do it in your grace;
here I arm myself to fight
life’s long battle in your might.
4. You have made both mind and soul:
these I use at your control;
you have died that I might live:
all my powers to you I give.
5. Striving, thinking, studying, may
I aspire to walk your way,
till my nature through and through
is equipped for life-for you.
