"lord, help me,
for i am often lukewarm and chill;
unbelief mars my confidence,
sin makes me forget thee.
let the weeds that grow in my soul
be cut at their roots;
grant me to know
that i truly live only when i live to thee,
that all else is trifling.
thy presence alone can make me holy,
devout, strong and happy.
abide in me, gracious god."
