338. Show Me Thy Way, O Lord

1 Show me Thy way, O Lord,
And make it plain:
I would obey Thy word, -
Speak yet again.
I would not take one step until I know
Which way it is that you want me to go.

2 O Lord,I cannot see;
Grant me Thy light;
Darkness bewilders me,
Clouding my sight;
Hold Thou my hand, and keep close by my side:
I dare not go alone; be Thou my guide.

3 I cannot see Thy face,
Yet Thou art here;
When will the morning chase
My doubt and fear?
When shall I see the place where day and night
Shall come not, for Thy glory is its light?

4 I will be patient, Lord,
And do Thy will;
I will not doubt Thy word,
My hope fulfil.
How can I perish, if in Thee I hide;
Jesus, my Comforter, my Hope and Guide!
