    Verse 1
    Jesus, my strength, my hope,
    On Thee I cast my care,
    With humble confidence look up,
    And know Thou hear'st my prayer.
    Give me on Thee to wait,
    Till I can all things do,
    On Thee, almighty to create,
    Almighty to renew

    Verse 2
    I want a godly fear,
    A quick-discerning eye
    That looks to Thee when sin is near,
    And sees the tempter fly:
    A spirit still prepared,
    And armed with jealous care,
    For ever standing on its guard
    And watching unto prayer

    Verse 3
    I want a true regard,
    A single, steady aim,
    Unmoved by threatening or reward,
    To Thee and Thy great name;
    A jealous, just concern
    For Thine immortal praise;
    A pure desire that all may learn
    And glorify Thy grace

    Verse 4
    I rest upon Thy word;
    The promise is for me;
    My succour and salvation, Lord,
    Shall surely come from Thee:
    But let me still abide,
    Nor from my hope remove,
    Till Thou my patient spirit guide
    Into Thy perfect love
