     31 And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis. 32 And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him. 33 And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue; 34 And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. 35 And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain. 36 And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it; 37 And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.(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!
