Oh let me never be afraid of life,
To make me strive to better know Thy love,
That love will never let me go. Life’s strife
I know so very well, but I must leave
My past behind and let my soul to rest.
To ease my pain and suffering. I try,
I try, this world is not enough. I’m blest
To know my God, my Lord, to Thee I cry,
So let me put my sins of youth behind.
And let me trust and know Thy blessings, Lord,
To keep me whole, so right, so true, so kind.
I thank Thee Lord, forgive my sins didst Thou.
So make me run away from what hast been,
And keep me sure and strong, to fight my sin.
