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.
