6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: 7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. 8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. 9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates. 10 And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not, 11 And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full; 12 Then beware lest thou forget the LORD, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. 13 Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name. 14 Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;(KJV)

1. O God, Thou faithful God, 
Thou Fountain ever flowing, 
Who good and perfect gifts 
In mercy art bestowing, 
Give me a healthy frame, 
And may I have within 
A conscience free from blame, 
A soul unhurt by sin! 

2. Grant Thou me strength to do 
With ready heart and willing 
Whate’er Thou shalt command, 
My calling here fulfilling; 
To do it when I ought, 
With all my might, and bless 
The work I thus have wrought, 
For Thou must give success. 

3. Oh, let me never speak 
What bounds of truth exceedeth; 
Grant that no idle word 
From out my mouth proceedeth; 
And then, when in my place 
I must and ought to speak, 
My words grant power and grace 
Lest I offend the weak. 

4. If dangers gather round, 
Still keep me calm and fearless; 
Help me to bear the cross 
When life is dark and cheerless; 
And let me win my foe 
With words and actions kind. 
When counsel I would know, 
Good counsel let me find. 

5. And let me with all men, 
As far as in me lieth, 
In peace and friendship live. 
And if Thy gift supplieth 
Great wealth and honor fair, 
Then this refuse me not, 
That naught be mingled there 
Of goods unjustly got. 

6. If Thou a longer life 
Hast here on earth decreed me; 
If Thou through many ills 
To age at length wilt lead me, 
Thy patience on me shed. 
Avert all sin and shame 
And crown my hoary head 
With honor free from blame. 

7. Let me depart this life 
Confiding in my Savior; 
Do Thou my soul receive 
That it may live forever; 
And let my body have 
A quiet resting-place 
Within a Christian grave; 
And let it sleep in peace. 

8. And on that solemn Day 
When all the dead are waking, 
Stretch o’er my grave Thy hand, 
Thyself my slumbers breaking. 
Then let me hear Thy voice, 
Change Thou this earthly frame, 
And bid me aye rejoice 
With those who love Thy name.
