1 My God, I thank thee for the guide
Thou hast implanted in my soul,
O'er passion's stormy waves to ride
And bring self-love to its control.
2 Whene'er the tempter lingers near,
In sinful paths my soul to lure,
Teach me that warning voice to hear;
And in obeying keep me pure.
3 Oh, let no gilded sin deceive,
To blind my eyes, my soul betray;
The steadfast truth may I believe,
And follow where it leads the way.
4 The single eye shall thus be mine,
And light improved new light convey,
And brighter still my path shall shine
To portals of eternal day.
