16 And it shall be at that day, saith the LORD, that thou shalt call me Ishi; and shalt call me no more Baali. 17 For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name. 18 And in that day will I make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven, and with the creeping things of the ground: and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth, and will make them to lie down safely. 19 And I will betroth thee unto me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies. 20 I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the LORD. 21 And it shall come to pass in that day, I will hear, saith the LORD, I will hear the heavens, and they shall hear the earth; 22 And the earth shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil; and they shall hear Jezreel. 23 And I will sow her unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people; and they shall say, Thou art my God.(KJV)

1. Lord of my life, whose tender care 
Hath led me on till now, 
Here lowly, at the hour of prayer, 
Before Thy throne I bow. 
I bless Thy gracious hand and pray 
Forgiveness for another day. 

2. Oh, may I daily, hourly, strive 
In heavenly grace to grow, 
To Thee and to Thy glory live, 
Dead to all else below! 
Tread in the path my Savior trod, 
Though thorny, yet the path of God. 

3. With prayer my humble praise I bring 
For mercies day by day. 
Lord, teach my heart Thy love to sing; 
Lord, teach me how to pray. 
All that I have and am, to Thee 
I offer through eternity.
