Be it my only wisdom here,
To serve the Lord with filial fear,
With loving gratitude;
Superior sense may I display
By shunning every evil way,
And walking in the good.

O may I still from sin depart;
A wise and understanding heart,
Jesus, to me be given,
And let me through Thy Spirit know
To glorify my God below,
And find my way to Heaven.
