|Text:||O Master, Let Me Walk with Thee|
|Composer:||Henry Percy Smith|
1 O Master, let me walk with thee
in lowly paths of service free;
tell me thy secret; help me bear
the strain of toil, the fret of care.
2 Help me the slow of heart to move
by some clear, winning word of love;
teach me the wayward feet to stay,
and guide them in the homeward way.
3 Teach me thy patience, still with thee
in closer, dearer company,
in work that keeps faith sweet and strong,
in trust that triumphs over wrong.
4 In hope that sends a shining ray
far down the future's broadening way;
in peace that only thou canst give,
with thee, O Master, let me live.

In honestly admitting the limits of human ability, this prayerful hymn does not seek a sense of God’s presence for self-comfort but for strength and companionship in pursuing the tasks that God sets before us. The author speciﬁcally chose this tune to accompany his words.
