Full Text

1 Dear Saviour, let Thy watchful eye
Protect me day by day,
That from the precious fold I love
My heart may never stray.

Make me humble, loving, dutiful;
Make Thy home within me beautiful;
Cleanse my heart from sin;
Let no stranger in.

2 I want Thy Spirit’s gentle power,
My constant guide to be;
I want Thy love, Thy tender care,
To bind me close to Thee. [Refrain]

3 In sweet submission may I walk
Along the shining way,
Till Thou my Saviour call me home,
To realms of endless day. [Refrain]
