I live alone, Dear Lord,
Stay by my side,
in all my daily needs
Be thou my guide
Grant me good health,
For that indeed, I pray.
To carry out my work from day to day.
Keep pure my mind, my thoughts,
my every deed,
Let me be kind, unselfish in my
Spare me from fire, from flood,
From thieves, from fear, and evil ones.
If sickness, or accident befall,
then humbly Lord, I pray,
hear Thou my call.
And when I’m feeling low,
or in despair,
Lift up my heart and help me in
I live alone Dear lord, yet have
Because I feel your presence ever near.
