     1 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. 2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. 3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. 4 But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.(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!
