Colossians 1: 9-11
O Lord my God, keep firm your hold
on all your children, young and old,
and lead them on their pilgrim way,
and help them trust, your words obey.
And make them rich in every gift
that you can give, – see Satan sift
your loved ones, – give them strength to fight
and help them live and walk in light.
Make me like salt and shining light,
make me more pleasing in your sight;
please give me wisdom, help me care
for others and their burdens share.
(partly based on Welsh hymn)
