General Prayers.

102.

Come, dearest Savior, take my heart
And let me ne’er from Thee depart. Amen.

103.

Jesus, tender Savior,
Thou hast died for me;
Make me very thankful
In my heart to Thee.
When the sad, sad story
Of Thy grief I read,
Make me very sorry
For my sins indeed.

Now, I know Thou livest,
And dost plead for me;
Make me very thankful
In my prayers to Thee.
Soon I hope in glory
At Thy side to stand;
Make me fit to meet Thee
In that happy land! Amen.

104.

Lamb of God, I look to Thee;
Thou shalt my example be;
Thou art gentle, meek, and mild,
Thou wast once a little child.

Fain, I would be as Thou art:
Give me Thy obedient heart.
Thou art pitiful and kind:
Let me have Thy loving mind.

Loving Jesus, gentle Lamb,
In Thy gracious hands I am;
Make me, Savior, what Thou art,
Live Thyself within my heart.

I shall then show forth Thy praise,
Serve Thee all my happy days;
Then the world shall always see
Christ, the holy Child, in me. Amen.

105.

Jesus, help my eyes to see
All the good Thou sendest me.
Jesus, help my ears to hear
Calls for help from far and near.
Jesus, help my feet to go
In the way that Thou wilt show.
Jesus, help my hands to do
All things loving, kind, and true.
Jesus, may I helpful be,
Growing every day like Thee. Amen.

106.

Be near me, Lord Jesus!
I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever
And love me, I pray.
Bless all the dear children
In Thy tender care
And take us to heaven
To live with Thee there. Amen.

107.

Holy Spirit, give us
Each a lowly mind;
Make us more like Jesus,
Gentle, pure, and kind.

Holy Spirit, brighten
Little deeds of toil,
And our playful pastimes
Let no folly spoil.

Holy Spirit, help us
Daily by Thy might
What is wrong to conquer
And to choose the right. Amen.

108.

Jesus, from Thy throne on high,
Far above the bright blue sky,
Look on us with the loving eye;
Hear us, holy Jesus!

Be Thou with us every day,
In our work and in our play,
When we learn and when we pray;
Hear us, holy Jesus!

May we grow from day to day,
Glad to learn each holy way,
Ever ready to obey;
Hear us, holy Jesus!

May we ever try to be
From our sinful tempers free,
Pure and gentle, Lord, like Thee;
Hear us, holy Jesus!

Jesus, Son of God most high,
Who didst in the manger lie,
Who upon the cross didst die—
Hear us, holy Jesus! Amen.
