O Lord, give me a heart that’s pure,
From base delusions free;
O help me ev’ry cross endure,
And always live to thee.
Through all temptations, help me stand
When storms of death surround;
O keep me in that lovely band
Where true redemption’s found.
I know there’s naught on earth below
Can give me solid peace,
Which can release my soul from wo
Or yield unchanging bliss,
O then I will with patience walk
The self-denying road,
With Mother’s pure and lovely flock
I’ll travel home to God.
