I live alone dear Lord Stay by my side In all my daily needs Be thou my guide Grant me good health
For that I specially pray To carry on my work from day to day Keep sound My mind My hands My every deed Help me be kind, unselfish In my neighbor’s need Shield me From fire From flood
From heartless ones From thieves From fright Fom wagging tongues If sickness or suffering should befall Give me strength unfailing to bear it all When I’m feeling low or in despair
Lift me up my burden swiftly bear I live alone dear Lord yet have no fear Because I know you’re ever present here. Amen.
