12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. 13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

     17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.(KJV)

1. The Lord hath helped me hitherto 
By His surpassing favor; 
His mercies every morn were new, 
His kindness did not waver. 
God hitherto hath been my Guide, 
Hath pleasures hitherto supplied, 
And hitherto hath helped me. 

2. I praise and thank Thee, Lord, my God, 
For Thine abundant blessing 
Which heretofore Thou hast bestowed 
And I am still possessing. 
Inscribe this on my memory: 
The Lord hath done great things for me 
And graciously hath helped me. 

3. Help me henceforth, O God of grace, 
Help me on each occasion, 
Help me in each and every place, 
Help me through Jesus’ Passion; 
Help me in life and death, O God, 
Help me through Jesus’ dying blood; 
Help me as Thou hast helped me!
