1 Father, I am weak and sinful,
Ever prone to go astray;
Like a wayward child of error,
I so often lose my way.
In Thy love, O God, have mercy;
In Thy grace redeem my soul;
Bring me back, O gentle Shepherd,
keep me safe within Thy fold.
2 In the billows of temptation,
When its waves are running high.
Bear me o'er life's sea of trouble,
Leave me not to sink and die. [Chorus]
3 Father, when the shades are falling,
And the night of death is near,
Guide me thro' the gloomy valley,
With Thy light my journey cheer. [Chorus]
4 Open, then, the pearly portals,
That unworthy though I be,
I may join the ransomed legions,
There to dwell eternally. [Chorus]
