1O help us, Lord; each hour of need
Thy heavenly succor give:
Help us in thought, in word, and deed,
Each hour on earth we live!
2O help us, when our spirits cry
With contrite anguish sore;
And when our hearts are cold and dry,
O help us, Lord, the more!
3O help us through the prayer of faith
More firmly to believe!
For still the more the servant hath,
The more shall he receive.
4O help us, Savior, from on high:
We have no help but Thee.
O help us so to live and die
As Thine in heaven to be! Amen.
