1. Strengthen for service, Lord, the hands
that holy things have taken;
Let ears that now have heard thy songs
to clamor never waken.
2. Lord, may the tongues which 'Holy' sang
keep free from all deceiving;
The eyes which saw thy love be bright,
thy bles-sed hope perceiving.
3. The feet that tread thy holy courts
from light do thou not banish;
The bodies by thy Body fed
with thy new life replenish.
