Faith's Prayer

Representative Text

1 Lead me, dear Lord, by Thine own hand,
Where’er the path may go;
It may be fair or desert land,
I do not need to know.
I only need to trust Thy care,
To know Thy love is sure,
To let Thee my burdens bear,
And in Thy strength endure.

2 Teach me, dear Lord, in Thine own way,
Whate’er I ought to be;
The lessons may be hard to say,
The path too dark to see,
But holding fast Thy pierced hand
I cannot go amiss;
Until I reach the Unseen Land
By faith I’ll walk in this.

3 Guide me, dear Lord, by Thine own eye,
In ev’ry step I take;
So shall I feel Thee always nigh,
And live for Thy dear sake.
And looking up to Thee, my Guide,
Thro’ darkness or thro’ light,
May I in trustful faith abide
Till faith is lost in sight.
