Representative Text

1 Be with me, Lord, each passing hour,
And make me pure and true;
Teach me to ne’er refuse thy call,
Whate’er thou bidd’st me do.

Refrain:
Where’er thou bidd’st me go, dear Lord,
Whate’er thou bidd’st me do,
Make me obedient to thy will,
And teach me to be true.

2 Thou seest, dear Lord, my path in life;
‘Tis thine to guide the way,
‘Tis mine obedience, Lord, to yield,
And follow day by day. [Refrain]

3 I would not ask to look beyond
The present hour, O Lord,
Enough for me to hold thy hand,
And take thee at thy word. [Refrain]

4 Full well I know thou canst not err,
So I will never fear,
But in the darkest gloom of night,
Still feel thy presence near. [Refrain]
