1 Searcher of hearts, from mine erase,
all thoughts that should not be,
and in its deep recesses trace
my gratitude to thee.
2 Hearer of prayer, O guide aright
each word and deed of mine;
life's battle teach me how to fight,
and be the vict'ry thine.
3 Giver of all - for ev'ry good
in the Redeemer came -
for raiment, shelter, and for food,
I thank thee in his name.
4 Father and Son and Holy Ghost,
thou glorious Three in One,
thou knowest best what I need most,
and let thy will be done.
