for his glory …

God’s child should want his honour
and humbly ask in prayer
what seems will bring him glory,
and ask that more will share
the blessings of the gospel,
though this may bring them pain
– the pruning by God’s Spirit
that leads to priceless gain.

A heart that loves God’s honour
communes with God in prayer,
is upright, honest, contrite,
and knows that God will hear;
gives time and thought and effort
to pray and learn God’s ways,
and asks for what will truly
bring righteousness and praise.
Tune; 76 76 D Salvatori by Salvatore Ferretti  or Nettleton (American Melody)
