532. I Will Bless Thee, Said The Savior

1 I will bless thee, said the Savior,
I will guide thee with Mine eye;
I will keep thine ev'ry footstep
Till I lift thee up on high.--
So His blessings have been with you
Now for many toilsome years,
And His mercy has upheld you
Spite of fightings, doubts, and fears.

2 Thou, my friend, shalt be a blessing,
So the great Redeemer said;
See thou that the little children,
These My precious lambs, be fed.
May this privilege of glory,
Which has crowned you hitherto,
Ever through long years of service
Keep you loyal, staunch, and true!
