Lord Give Me Grace

Lord, give me grace, what're this day may hold,
If I may face the Jordan's waters cold
As one I love sets out upon that sea
To meet You, Lord, Oh God, be here with me!

Lord, give me grace, if she should suffer more
Before You call her home to that fair shore;
If it's Your Will to make her whole again,
Oh God in Heaven, release her from this pain.

Lord, give me grace for each succeeding day,
As You have always done along life's way,
Until some day, triumphant we shall stand,
With You forever, in that better land!
