Let not de-spair nor fell re-venge
Be to my bo-som known
O give me tears for oth-er's woes,
And pa-tience for my own.

Feed me, O Lord, with needful food:
I ask not wealth, or fame;
But give me eyes to view thy works,
A heart to praise thy name,

O may my days obscurely pass,
Without remorse or care;
And let me for my parting hour,
From day to day prepare.
