1 Jesus Christ, Thou Guiding-Star,
Thy great Name we praise and hallow;
From believers be it far
Any other Guide to follow;
Thou, Lord, if we walk in light,
Wilt direct our steps aright.
2 Christians are not here below
To enjoy earth’s fleeting treasure.
After Christ they’re called to go,
His reproach they count a pleasure;
Under manifold distress,
Through the narrow gate they press.
3 Savior, now for strength we plead,
In Thy love together banded,
To advance where Thou dost lead
Doing what Thou hast commanded.
Heart and hand we pledge Thee here;
Give us grace to persevere.
