Representative Text

1 Every step, my Savior, lead Thou me,
Then I shall not go astray;
Safe in Thy dear keeping I shall be,
Till shall dawn the better day.

Every step, every step,
Let me never walk alone;
Keep my hand in Thine,
O Thou friend divine,
Till I stand before Thy throne.

2 There are foes who try to take control,
Who would lead me into sin;
Every step, dear Jesus, lead my soul,
Then I know that I shall win. [Refrain]

3 If I feel the touch of Thy dear hand,
I shall trust Thy saving grace,
And in every trial firmly stand
Till I meet Thee face to face. [Refrain]
