Wavering Christian's Prayer
Give me strength for, Lord, I
give me courage to plod on.
Help me overcome temptation;
show me, Lord, I'm not alone.
Oh, for grace to keep me going!
Please, from You don't let me
Grant me now Your tender mercy;
lead me to Your heavenly home.
Give me heartfelt blood
and a staunch determined will
to reach upward for Your riches,
not turning back nor standing
Yes, my Lord, You will enfold
You will cleanse my heart anew,
and again You will restore me
with Your love so pure and true.
