So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

532. Teach Me, O Lord, Thy Holy Way

1 Teach me, O Lord, thy holy way
and give me an obedient mind;
that in thy service I may find
my soul's delight from day to day.

2 Guide me, O Savior, with thy hand,
and so control my thoughts and deeds,
that I may tread the path which leads
right onward to the blessed land.

3 Help me, O Savior, here to trace
the sacred footsteps thou hast trod;
and, meekly walking with my God,
to grow in goodness, truth, and grace.

4 Guard me, O Lord, that I may ne'er
forsake the right, or do the wrong:
against temptation make me strong,
and round me spread thy shelt'ring care.

5 Bless me in ev'ry task, O Lord,
begun, continued, done for thee:
fulfil thy perfect work in me;
and thine abounding grace afford.
