Lord, to Thee Alone We Turn

Author: Albert E. Evans Hymnal: The Cyber Hymnal #4059 Meter: D Lyrics: 1. Lord, to Thee alone we turn, To Thy cross for safety fly; There, as penitents, to learn How to live and how to die. Sinful on our knees we fall; Hear us, as for help we plead; Hear us when on Thee we call; Aid us in our time of need. 2. In the midst of sin and strife, In the depths of mortal woe, Teach us, Lord, to live a life Meet for sojourners below. Though the road be oft times dark, Though the feet in weakness stray, Lead us, Savior as the ark Led Thy chosen on their way. 3. Weak and weary and alone When the vale of death we tread, Then be all Thy mercy shown, Then be all Thy love displayed; Guard us in that darksome hour, Lead us to the land of rest, Where, secure from Satan’s power, We may lie upon Thy breast.
