Music: (Hymn Tune)
Scripture: Psalm 141
1. Lord, as incense rises before Thee,
so my voice in prayer shall ascend.
Hear me when I cry: come Thou quickly;
graciously to me descend.
Lift my hands to give
the sacrifice of praise.
Look with mercy on my ways.
2. Set as sentinel Thy Spirit
at my lips and mouth and heart.
Guard and guide me; by Thy merit
cause all evil to depart.
From my words and thoughts,
my actions and my life,
purify and save me from strife.
3. Turn my heart to Thee, holy Father,
turn my eyes to Thy holy Son.
Turn my life, by Thy Holy Spirit
to the victory Christ has won:
To the refuge sure, which
given by his grace,
keeps me ever in Thy embrace.
This hymn paraphrase is sung to the tune of Picardy.
It can be used in any Season of the Church Year.
