Representative Text

1 Dear Father, we know not a step of the way;
Without Thee we falter and wander astray;
Be Thou our protector, companion and friend,
And guide Thou our feet till life’s journey shall end.

2 If sorrow await us, if pain be our share,
O comfort us, Father, and save from despair;
If danger and trial be not far away,
Be Thou our strong tower, our fortress, our stay.

3 If gladness and peace make our life rich and sweet,
O help us Thy praises with joy to repeat;
O lift Thou upon us the light of Thy face,
And teach us to bless Thee for gifts of Thy grace.

4 Each day may we walk as with Thee by our side,
To Thee all our longings in secret confide;
Abide with us, Father, by night and by day,
And life shall be holy each step of the way.
