Representative Text

1 Jesus, blessed Saviour,
Grant my earnest pray’r;
Take me now and keep me
In Thy watchful care.

Lord, my youthful footsteps,
In the narrow way,
From Thy fold so peaceful
Let me never stray.

2 Keep me from the tempter,
Shield me from his pow’r,
Whisper words of comfort
In the trying hour. [Refrain]

3 Like a child submissive,
Help me, Lord, to be
Patient, kind, and gentle,
More and more like Thee. [Refrain]
