Encouraged by Thy love and care,
I bend the sup­pli­ant knee,
And of­fer in Thy house of pray­er,
My vows, oh Lord, to Thee.

When lang­uor seized my fee­ble frame,
And threat­ened speedy death,
From Thee the time­ly suc­cor came,
Which gave me back my breath.

Now by Thy pow­er and grace re­stored,
And res­cued from the grave,
What shall I ren­der to the Lord,
Who migh­ty is to save?

To Thee, my kind de­li­ver­ing friend,
I yield my sin­ful heart;
My all I give, till life shall end,
Nor from Thee will de­part.

Upheld by Thine al­migh­ty grace,
My love to Thee I’ll prove;
With zeal will run the Chris­tian race
Till I ar­rive above.
