Representative Text

1 Jesus, guide our way

Lead us by the hand

2 When we danger meet,
Steadfast keep our feet;
Lord preserve us uncomplaining,
'Mid the darkness round us reigning!

Lies our way to thee.

3 Order all our way
Through this mortal day!
In our toil with aid be near us;
In our need with succor cheer us;
When life's course in o'er,
Open thou the door!
