1 In life or death, Lord Jesus Christ,
be all in all, I pray;
your life, your death make known in me
on earth, till heaven's day.

2 In sun or shadow be my help;
your voice shall guide my feet:
teach me by your incisive word;
your work in me complete.

3 In calm or crisis, be my hope
and take my mind in hand;
so shall I trust you, even where
I cannot understand.

4 In loss or profit, be my joy;
my hours for you be spent:
I can do all things in your strength;
so shall I be content.

5 In risk or safety, be my friend;
I place my hand in yours,
with you to rest, or wait, or walk
or run with all my powers.

6 O Christ my help, my hope, my joy,
my all-enduring Friend,
all that I am belongs to you
who loved me to the end.
