The Wavering Christian's Prayer

Give me strength for, Lord, I need it,
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 roam.
Grant me now Your tender mercy;
lead me to Your heavenly home.

Give me heartfelt blood redemption
and a staunch determined will
to reach upward for Your riches,
not turning back nor standing still.

Yes, my Lord, You will enfold me;
You will cleanse my heart anew,
and again You will restore me
with Your love so pure and true.
