Representative Text

1 Lamp of my feet, Thy guidance lend,
Walk by my side, my path attend;
Led by thy hand I cannot stray,
Lamp of my feet, my Life, my Way!

Lamp of my feet, Light of my path!
Lead, oh, lead Thou me;
Star of my soul, guide and control,
Lead me nearer Thee.

2 Light of my path, illume my soul,
Help me thy glories to extol;
Fill me with peace like that above,
Light of my soul, Celestial Dove! [Refrain]

3 Star of my soul, within me shine,
Fill me with beams of joy divine;
Let me Thy faithful servant be,
Star of my soul, oh, lead thou me! [Refrain]
