HYMN 855

8s 6s 

1.  I and all those of my household

     Will worship and serve the Lord God 

    But I even I will

    By my words and by my actions 

    Show that I know the God of heav’n 

    And serve Him truthfully.

2.  I will create good example

     And remove every obstacle

     From the way of my ward

     By my life, show them their duty 

     Yet, in my duty, to obtain 

     Honour that comes through love.

3.  I'll be easily entreated

     And in wrath remember mercy 

    The Lord’s true disciple

    I also want to be holy

    And bring my household and 

    loved ones 

    Into the narrow way.

4.  When Thou has put the flame of love 

     Within this chosen vessel’s heart 

    Receive it to Thyself

    Lord, do Thy goodwill within me 

    Help to show by my life how each 

    Bible Christian should live.

5.  Grant to me, dear Lord, Thy good grace 

     Behold, I come to testify

     Of Thy wonderful name

     That sav'd my soul from perdition 

     And the grace that is felt within

    Of which each tongue can speak.

6.  I who have been set free from sin 

     Desire my household to be sav’d

     I would tell pardon

     To my child, my wife and servants 

     To make them walk in the good way 

     To a holy heaven.  Amen
