22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. 26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. 27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.(KJV)

1. In Thee alone, O Christ, my Lord, 
My hope on earth remaineth; 
I know Thou wilt Thine aid afford, 
Naught else my soul sustaineth. 
No strenghth of man, no earthly stay 
Can help me in the evil day; 
Thou, only Thou, canst aid supply. 
To Thee I cry; 
On Thee I bid my heart rely. 

2. My sins, O Lord, against me rise, 
I mourn them with contrition; 
Grant, through my death and sacrifice, 
To me a full remission. 
Lord, show before the Father’s throne 
That Thou didst for my sins atone; 
So shall I from my load be freed. 
Thy Word I plead; 
Keep me, O Lord, each hour of need. 

3. O Lord, in mercy stay my heart 
On faith’s most sure foundation 
And to my inmost soul impart 
Thy perfect consolation. 
Fill all my life with love to Thee, 
Toward all men grant me charity; 
And at the last, when comes my end, 
Thy succor send. 
From satan’s wiles my soul defend.
