Hymn day: “Purer in Heart, O God”

I don’t think I’ve sung this since I was a little girl, and the church in Mountain Lake, Minnesota (where we lived when I was a second grader), comes to mind, so that was a long time ago! But the words to “Purer in Heart, O God” by Fannie Estelle Davison are so impactful. You might want to read them as a prayer.

1 Purer in heart, O God,
Help me to be;
May I devote my life
Wholly to Thee.
Watch Thou my wayward feet,
Guide me with counsel sweet;
Purer in heart,
Help me to be.

2 Purer in heart, O God,
Help me to be;
Teach me to do Thy will
Most lovingly.
Be Thou my friend and guide,
Let me with Thee abide;
Purer in heart,
Help me to be.

3 Purer in heart, O God,
Help me to be;
Until Thy holy face
One day I see.
Keep me from secret sin,
Reign Thou my soul within;
Purer in heart,
Help me to be.
