1 Jesus, Saviour, by Thy side
Day by day would I abide;
Take my hand, be Thou my Guide,
Whatsoever may betide.

2 Shadows darken: day has fled;
By Thee, Lord, would I be led;
Forward would I go with Thee,
Though the path I may not see.

3 I would hearken, would obey,
Follow Thee though dark the way;
Out of weakness make me strong,
All my sighing turn to song.

4 Sweet the service, sweet the call,
Gladly I surrender all—
All, Lord Jesus, give to Thee,
Now and through eternity.

5 Onward to my home above,
Guided by the hand I love;
Circled by Thy arm of grace,
Till I see Thee face to face.
