1 Jesus, I fain would walk with Thee,—
From nature’s every path retreat;
Thou art my Way,—my Leader be,
And set upon the rock my feet.
He is my Rock, on Him I build,
My firm foundation ne’er shall yield!
The pow’rs of sin shall not prevail,
My Rock is sure and cannot fail!
2 Uphold me, Saviour, or I fall;
O reach me out Thy gracious hand;
Only on Thee for help I call,—
Only by faith in Thee I stand. [Chorus]
