Charles H. Gabriel (1856–1932)


O God of grace, increase my faith!
Help me to daily trust Thy Word;
Give me the strength that always comes
From leaning on my blessèd Lord.


O God of grace, in Je­sus’ name
Increase my faith, upbuild my hope,
My heart with zeal inflame,
Send down Thy Spir­it from above,
Till faith and hope are lost in love.

O God of grace, upbuild my hope!
Let not a doubt my spirit sway;
Be Thou my constant shield of light
That I may walk the narrow way.


O God of grace, inspire my love!
Fill my cold heart with holy fire,
That I may live each passing day
As my Re­deem­er doth desire.
