Lord, as Thou wilt, deal Thou with me;
No other wish I cherish;
In life and death I cling to Thee;
Oh, do not let me perish!
Let not Thy grace from me depart
And grant an ever patient heart
To bear what Thou dost send me.
Grant honor, truth, and purity,
And love Thy Word to ponder;
From all false doctrine keep me free,
Bestow, both here and yonder,
What serves my everlasting bliss;
Preserve me from unrighteousness
Throughout my earthly journey.
When, at Thy summons, I must leave
This vale of sin and sadness,
Give me Thy grace, Lord, not to grieve,
But to depart with gladness.
To Thee my spirit I commend;
O Lord, grant me a blessèd end
Through Jesus Christ, my Savior.
