Keep Me Faithful to Thee

We celebrate Your faithfulness, O King!
With hearts of joy Your praises we will sing
We have seen Your mighty hands
Doing wonders in our midst;
Your promises of days gone by,
We’ve seen them come to pass.

Thus far the Lord has helped us,
Your faithfulness we’ve tasted
And we believe without doubt
To higher planes You’ll lead us on,
Where once again we’ll celebrate
The goodness of our Lord…our faithful God!

Unfailing love You’ve shown us through the years;
Your perfect peace and presence ever near.
We’ve seen Your mighty power
How I wish I could be free of mothering!
Bring renewal in our lives.
Refiner’s fire, purify us ‘til we be as gold.’

We look toward the years ahead with You;
To greater works and deeds You’ll do anew.
Anoint afresh our lives,
Fill us with Your holy zeal
That we My see the greater glory
Of this present house.

c. 1992 Catherine L.F. Wong

In the stillness of Your presence, my dear Saviour and Lord, take over Your’s servant’s life; do with her anything You like…only that she may be found faithful to You alone…. In Your Name I pray.
