I need a strength to keep me true
And starlight in everything I do;
I need power to keep me strong
When I am tempted to do wrong;

I need grace to keep me pure
When passion tries its deadly lure;
I need a love to keep me sweet
When hardness and mistrust I meet;

I need an arm to be my stay
When dark with trouble grows my day;
And naught on earth can these afford,
But all is found in Christ my Lord.
- Theodore Horton
