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.
