1 Jesus, Thy strength we need,
Sowing Thy precious seed.
In tho’t, or word, or deed,
Oh, lead us by Thy hand.

2 May we this hour be led
In righteous paths to tread;
And, by Thy manna fed,
Oh, lead us by Thy hand.

3 As this brief fleeting day
Passes so swift away,
May we from Thee not stray,—
Oh, lead us by Thy hand.

4 And when the hour draws nigh
When death shall dim our eye,
Take us to Thee on high,—
Oh, lead us by Thy hand.
