503. Through good report and evil, Lord

1 Through good report and evil, Lord,
Still guided by Thy faithful Word,
Our staff, our buckler, and our sword,
We follow thee.

2 With enemies on ev'ry side,
We learn on thee, the Crucified;
Forsaking all on earth beside,
We follow thee.

3 O Master, point thou out the way,
Nor suffer thou our steps to stray;
Then in the path that leads to day,
We follow thee.

4 Thou hast passed on before our face;
Thy footsteps on the way we trace;
Oh, keep us, aid us by thy grace:
We follow thee.

5 Whom have we in the heaven above,
Whom on this earth, save thee, to love?
Still in thy light we onward move;
We follow thee.
