5 Hold Thou Thy Cross before my closing eyes:
Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies:
Fa-ther, this I ask of Thee; Knowing that Thou wilt grant the plea, 2. I do not ask lift - ed load, Nor for a smooth and thornless road; 3. Strength for the pres-ent hour and need—This giv-en, then I'm blest in - deed, 4. Strength for to · day, that I may make Some sad souls glad, for Je · sus' sake;
For this, and on ly this, I pray, Strength for to - day-just for
to-day. Sim-ply for strength e nough to bear Life's dai - ly bur - dens an
y-where. For each day, it comes, will bring Suf · fi-cient strength for an
y.thing. Then they, with me, at eve shall say, Thank God for strength Hegave to - day.
Strength for each tri
al and each task, What more, my Fa-ther, should I ask?
I need it, day by day,Strength for my weakness,—this I pray.
