2  It was the glory of Thy heart,
Whate'er Thou hadst to give; For others' sufferings to impart, For others' good to live.
3  Be Thou in us a living soul;
Be Thou.our spirit's power;
Its secret thought, its life's control,
To guide it every hour. 4 We need like Thee a spirit true,
A just and generous mind, Which seeks, in all it has to do,
The good of all mankind.
Rev. Thomas C. Upham, 1872
<i But Thou hast needy brethren here,
Partakers of Thy grace, Whose names Thou wilt Thyself confess
Before the Father's face. $ In each sad accent of distress
Thy pleading voice is heard; In them Thou may'st be clothed and fed,
And visited and cheered. %% Help us then, Lord, Thy yoke to wear,
And joy to do Thy will;
Each other's burdens gladly bear, And love's sweet law fulfil.
5  Thy face with reverence and with love
We in Thy poor would see; And while we minister to them, Would do it as to Thee.
6  Do Thou, O Lord, our alms accept,
And with Thy blessing speed; Bless us in giving; greatly bless Our gifts to them that need.
P. Doddridge, 1753
