Jesus said to them,

"When you pray, say:


May your name be kept holy.
May your kingdom come.

Give us each day our bread;

Forgive us our sins,

As we ourselves forgive

All who owe us;

And lead us not into temptation.’”

Laid on thine altar, O my Lord divine, accept this gift today, for Jesus’ sake.

I have no jewels to adorn thy shrine, nor any world-famed sacrifice to make;

But here I bring, within my trembling hand, this will of mine – a thing that seemeth small;

And thou alone, O Lord, canst understand how, when I yield this thee, I yield mine all.


Hidden therein thy searching gaze canst see struggles of passions, visions of delight,

All that I have, or am, or fain would be – deep loves, fond hopes and longings infinite.

It hath been wet with tears, dimmed with sighs, clenched in my grasp till beauty hath it none.

Now, from thy footstool, where it vanquished lies, the prayer ascendeth – “May thy will be done!”


Take it, O Father, ere my courage fail; and merge it so in Thine own will that I

May never have a wish to take it back; when heart and courage fail, to thee I’ll fly.

So change, so purify, so like thine own, make thou my will so graced by love divine

I may not know or feel it as mine own, but recognize my will as one with Thine.

  --C.T. Russell
