Full Text

1 I travel into distant lands,
There to discharge my trust and call;
Commit myself into thy hands,
To thee, my God, who governs all.

2 All my concerns to thee is known,
And what my occupations are,
May all in thy bless'd Name be done
With caution, love and holy fear.

3 Be with me Lord, from day to day,
Defend and guard my life from harm:
Grant grace and wisdom that I may
My duty and my call perform.

4 Take charge of all I leave behind,
And let thy grace with them reside,
As thou art gracious, good and kind,
For all their wants and needs provide.

5 Dangers compass me all around,
Where e'er I go in ev'ry place;
No place of safety here is found,
whilst I am here to run my race.

6 Whilst I remain on earth below,
My life is but a pilgrimage:
I have to wander to and fro,
This world affords no certain stage.

7 But I shall find a constant home,
Where I shall be for ever blest,
When Christ my blessed Lord shall come,
And take me home with him to rest.
