May I Remember Thee

May I Remember Thee

By Minnie Iverson Hodapp

May I remember Thee, O Lord,
With joyful innocence,
Nor read thy dear and precious word
With darkened countenance,
But as the crystal streams upstart
With bright and mirthful glee,
With gladness and a willing heart
May I remember Thee.

May I remember thee, O Lord,
But not with sighing fear,
By sweet revealings of Thy word,
Inspire and draw me near.
By every dear and lovely thing
Which all around I see
’Mid flowers a-bloom and birds that sing,
May I remember Thee.

May I remember Thee, O Lord,
In happiness and smile,
All graciously and willingly
With spirit free from guile.
’Neath balmy skies of summer blue
Where life is glad and free,
With loving heart and spirit true,
May I remember Thee.

(1920)
