434. Father, Lead Me Day by Day

1 Father, lead me day by day,
Ever in Thine own sweet way;
Teach me to be pure and true;
Show me what I ought to do.

2 When in danger, make me brave,
Make me know that Thou canst save;
Keep me safely by Thy side;
Let me in Thy love abide.

3 When I'm tempted to do wrong,
Make me steadfast, wise, and strong;
And when all alone I stand,
Shield me with Thy mighty hand.

4 May I do the good I know,
Serving gladly here below,
Then at last go home to Thee,
Evermore Thine own to be.
