Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer. (Psalm 19:14 ESV)
Hymn ELH 13:1,3 Dearest Jesus, Draw Thou Near Me
Dearest Jesus, draw Thou near me,
Let Thy Spirit dwell with mine;
Open now my ear to hear Thee,
Take my heart and seal it Thine;
Keep me, lead me on my way
Thee to follow and obey;
E’er to do Thy will and fear Thee,
And rejoice to know and hear Thee.
Thou, earth’s greatest joy and gladness,
And salvation, full and free,
Let Thy presence cheer my sadness,
And prepare my soul for Thee!
In the hour when I depart,
Touch my spirit, lips and heart,
With Thy word assure, uphold me
Till the heav’nly gates enfold me.
Jesus, my Savior, thank You for forgiving all my sins. Through Your Word lead me to do Your will. Amen.
