Be it my only wisdom here

To serve the Lord with filial fear

And 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.
