    Verse 1
    I and all those of my household
    Will worship and serve the Lord God,
    But I even I will
    By my words and by my actions
    Show that I know the God of heav'n
    And serve Him truthfully.

    Verse 2
    I will create good example
    And remove every obstacle
    From the way of my ward;
    By my life, show them their duty
    Yet, in my duty, to obtain
    Honour that comes through love.

    Verse 3
    I'll be easily entreated
    And in wrath remember mercy,
    The Lord's true disciple;
    I also want to be holy
    And bring my household and loved ones
    Into the narrow way.

    Verse 4
    When Thou has put the flame of love
    Within this chosen vessel's heart
    Receive it to Thyself;
    Lord, do Thy goodwill within me,
    Help to show by my life how each
    Bible Christian should live.

    Verse 5
    Grant to me, dear Lord, Thy good grace;
    Behold, I come to testify
    Of Thy wonderful name
    That saved my soul from perdition
    And the grace that is felt within
    Of which each tongue can speak.

    Verse 6
    I who have been set free from sin
    Desire my household to be saved;
    I would tell of pardon
    To my child, my wife and servants
    To make them walk in the good way
    To a holy heaven.
