Grant That I May Ever Cast my Care on Thee

‎In the hour of trial, Jesus, plead for me
Lest by base denial I depart from Thee
When Thou seest me waver, with a look recall
Nor for fear or favor suffer me to fall
With forbidden pleasures would this vain world charm
Or its sordid treasures spread to work me harm
Bring to my remembrance sad Gethsemane
Or, in darker semblance, cross-crowned Calvary
Should Thy mercy send me sorrow, toil and woe
Or should pain attend me on my path below
Grant that I may never fail Thy hand to see
Grant that I may ever cast my care on Thee
