Lord, We Ask Thee Ere We Part

Hymns (1985, 2002), no. 153

Arranger: Ebenezer Beesley

1. Lord, we ask thee ere we part, Bless the teachings of this day. Plant them deep in ev’ry heart, That with us they’ll ever stay.

2. In the innocence of youth, We would all thy laws fulfill. Lead us in the way of truth. Give us strength to do thy will.

3. Father, merciful and kind, While we labor for the right, May we in thy service find Sweetest pleasure, pure delight.

4. All our follies, Lord, forgive. Keep us from temptations free. Help us evermore to live Lives of holiness to thee.
