1 By Thy blessed Spirit,
Saviour, lead Thou me;
There is none to guide me
Thro’ this world, but Thee.

By Thy spirit lead me,
With Thy manna feed me;
All along my pilgrim way,
Saviour, lead Thou me.

2 O my Saviour, hide me
In Thy secret place;
There no ill can harm me,
Sheltered by Thy grace. [Refrain]

3 With Thy hand defend me,
Grant Thy strength divine;
I am weak and helpless,
Make me wholly Thine. [Refrain]
