1 Jesus, my Truth, my Way,
My sure, unerring Light,
On Thee my feeble soul I stay,
Which Thou wilt lead aright.

2 My Wisdom and my Guide,
My Counselor Thou art:
Oh, let me never leave Thy side,
Nor from Thy paths depart!

3 Thou seest my feebleness;
Jesus, be Thou my Pow'r,
My Help and Refuge in distress,
My Fortress and my Tow'r.

4 Myself I cannot save,
Myself I cannot keep;
But strength in Thee I surely have,
Whose eyelids never sleep.

5 My soul to Thee alone
Now, therefore, I commend.
Thou, Jesus, having loved Thine own,
Wilt love me to the end!

Amen.
