3 O give me Samuel's ear,

By day and night, a heart that still The open ear, O Lord,

Moves at the breathing of Thy Alive and quick to hear

15 O give me Samuel's mind,

A sweet, unmurmuring faith, And to obey Thee first of all.

Obedient and resigned

To Thee in life and death! 4 O give me Samuel's heart,

That I may read with child-like A lowly heart, that waits

eyes Where in Thy house Thou art, Truths that are hidden from the Or watches at Thy gates!

As I have loved you. John xv: 12. I Saviour I teach me day by day, Learning how to love from Thee ; Love's sweet lesson to obey ;

Loving Him who first loved me. Sweeter lesson cannot be, Loving Him who first loved me.

4 Love in loving finds employ,

In obedience all her joy ;
2 With a child's glad heart of love, Ever new that joy will be,

At Thy bidding may I move; Loving Him who first loved me.
Prompt to serve and follow Thee,
Loving Him who first loved me. 5 Thus may I rejoice to show

That I feel the love I owe;
3 Teach me all Thy steps to trace, Singing, till the face I see,

Strong to follow in Thy grace; Of His love who first loved me.

If any man will follow me, let him deny himself and take up his cross. Matt. xvi : 24.

1 He who would valiant be

'Gainst all disaster,
Let him in constancy

Follow the Master.
There's no discouragement
Shall make him once relent
His first avowed intent

To be a pilgrim.

No foes shall stay his might, Though he with giants fight: He will make good his right

To be a pilgrim.

2 Who so beset him round

With dismal stories,
Do but themselves confound-

His strength the more is.

3 Since, Lord, thou dost defend

Us with thy Spirit,
We know we at the end

Shall life inherit.
Then fancies flee away!
I'll fear not what men say,
I'll labor night and day

To be a pilgrim.
