Representative lyrics

English (Original Language)

Be it my only wisdom here

Sacred Hymns (Manchester Hymnal) (1840, 1912), no. 28

1. Be it my only wisdom here To serve the Lord with filial fear. With loving gratitude; Superior sense may I display, By shunning every evil way, And walking in the good.

2. Oh, may I still from sin depart; A wise and understanding heart, Jesus, to me be given; And let me through Thy Spirit know To glorify my God below, And find my way to heaven.
