    Verse 1
    O loving Shepherd, care for us
    In these perilous times
    Give unto all Thy disciples,
    The power to watch and pray.

    Verse 2
    When our trials persist, O Lord
    And afflictions increase,
    Grant that our hearts rely on Thee,
    In long prevailing prayers.

    Verse 3
    The spirit of supplication
    In faith, give Thou to us
    Until we shall behold Thy face,
    And know Thy mighty name.

    Verse 4
    Until we are in communion,
    And sweetest fellowship,
    Let this be the heart's cry of all,
    We will not let Thee go.

    Verse 5
    I will not let Thee go except
    Thou tells Thy name to me,
    Oh, bless me with Thy salvation
    And let me be like Thee.

    Verse 6
    O, let me clearly see Thy face
    Up there in heaven above,
    Where faith will be transformed to sight,
    And prayer becomes our praise.
