1 In the pathway of my journey
I see steps that lead to God;
They’re the footsteps of my Savior,
Showing me the path He trod.

Refrain:
Lead me, Savior, lead me ever,
Lead me, Jesus, all the way;
Keep me ever in Thy footsteps
Lest I from thy pathway stray;
Keep me ever in Thy footsteps,
Lest I from Thy pathway stray.

2 Thou hast borne my ev’ry burden,
Borne death’s anguish on the tree;
All this hast thou meekly suffered
E’en for my iniquity. [Refrain]

3 Thou hast lived on earth for others,
Spent thy life for us in love;
Thus would I my life be spending
Till I meet Thee, Lord, above. [Refrain]
