104. Hymn for a Stronger Faith
O Lord, increase our faith,
And by it shield our hearts
That we may staunchly face
The tempter's fiery darts.
Were hosts against us mustered,
We then should not be flustered;
Were woes around us clustered
Like bees, a grain like mustard
Of faith would see us through the strife.
So be it, Lord of life!
Hear, Lord! Though we are weak,
We trust Your mighty acts.
A bruised reed do not break,
Nor quench a smoking flax!
Of faith give us a measure,
That we may grasp Your treasure;
Be now our heart's Refresher
To bear life's toil and pressure.
Through Your word read, proclaimed and served
Let us again be nerved!
We are unworthy slaves
Who little profit yield;
You, Lord, are He who saves,
Our Fortress and our Shield.
Stand by us; make us stronger
To watch a little longer!
For You we thirst and hunger;
Through You we more than conquer.
Keep us steadfast through life and death;
O Lord, increase our faith!
