1 May peace and love from God above
2 My bosom ever fill,
3 So shall I find an humble mind
4 Obedient to his will.
5 May faith and trust, and all that's just,
6 My soul with ardour fire,
7 I seek not wealth, I ask but health,
8 Nor more would I desire.
9 May thanks and praise, throughout my days,
10 My heart and mind employ,
11 So shall I know, whilst here below,
12 More than an earthly joy.
