811 (S.M.) Philip Doddridge

Thou God of Jabez, hear,

While we entreat Thy grace,

And borrow that expressive pray'r,

With which he sought Thy face.

"Oh, that the Lord indeed

Would me His servant bless,

From ev'ry evil shield my head,

And crown my paths with peace!

"Be His almighty hand

My helper and my guide,

'Til, with His saints in Canaan's land,

My portion He divide."

Thus pious Jabez prayed

While God inclined His ear;

And all by whom this suit is made,

Shall find the blessing near.
