Representative Text

1 Keep Thou my steps, O Lord,
Lest I should stray,
Forgetful of Thy Word,
And lose my way.

Refrain:
Keep Thou, O Lord, and guard me every hour
Till I am safe beyond the tempter’s pow’r.

2 Keep Thou my hand, O Lord,
Within Thine own
And stay my wand’ring tho’ts,
On Thee alone. [Refrain]

3 Keep Thou my heart, O Lord,
For I am weak,
Yet all my fears depart,
If Thou but speak. [Refrain]

4 Keep Thou my life, O Lord,
That I may be
In heart and will subdued,
Wholly to Thee. [Refrain]
