The king’s favor is toward a wise servant,
but his wrath is against him that causeth shame.

Spirit of God, Descend Upon My Heart
Spirit of God, descend upon my heart; Wean it from earth, through all its pulses move; Stoop to my weakness, mighty as Thou art, And make me love Thee as I ought to love.
Hast Thou not bid us love Thee, God and King? All, all Thine own, soul, heart and strength and mind; I see Thy cross — there teach my heart to cling: O let me seek Thee, and O let me find.
Teach me to feel that Thou art always nigh; Teach me the struggles of the soul to bear. To check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh; Teach me the patience of unanswered prayer.
Teach me to love Thee as Thine angels love, One holy passion filling all my frame; The baptism of the heaven-descended Dove, My heart an altar; and Thy love the flame. AMEN.
