23 And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see: 24 For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

     25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? 27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. 28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. 29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour? 30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, 34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.(KJV)

1. My Maker, be Thou nigh 
The light of life to give 
And guide me with Thine eye 
While here on earth I live. 
To Thee my heart I tender 
And all my powers surrender; 
Make it my one endeavor 
To love and serve Thee ever. 
Upon Thy promise I rely; 
My Maker, be Thou nigh. 

2. My Savior, wash me clean 
With Thy most precious blood, 
That takes away all sin 
And seals my peace with God 
My soul in peace abideth 
When in Thy wounds it hideth. 
There I find full salvation 
And freedom from damnation. 
Without Thee lost, defiled by sin, 
My Savior, wash me clean. 

3. My Comforter, give power 
That I may stand secure 
When in temptation’s hour 
The world and sin allure. 
The Son to me revealing, 
Inspire my thought and feeling, 
His Word of grace to ponder, 
Nor let me from Him wander, 
On me Thy gifts and graces shower: 
My Comforter, give power! 

4. O Holy Trinity! 
To whom I all things owe, 
Thine image graciously 
Within my heart bestow. 
Choose me, though weak and lowly, 
To be Thy temple holy 
Where praise shall rise unending 
For grace so condescending. 
O heavenly bliss, Thine own to be, 
O Holy Trinity!
