I Pray Thee, Dear Lord Jesus - #655 - Kingo

"I Pray Thee, Dear Lord Jesus"
By Thomas Hansen Kingo, 1634-1703

1. I pray Thee, dear Lord Jesus,
My heart to keep and train
That I Thy holy temple
From youth to age remain.
Turn Thou my thoughts forever
From worldly wisdom's lore;
If I but learn to know Thee,
I shall not want for more.
