Representative Text

1 O Jesus high and holy,
Now lend a list'ning ear;
When o'er we bow before thee,
Thou wilt our praises hear.
O lead us ever by thy guiding hand,
Watch o'er us lest we stray,
O blessed Saviour keep us
In that narrow way.

Chorus:
Hear us, hear us, blessed Jesus,
Safely keep us by thy hand,
Naught can thy pow'r withstand;
Hear us, hear us, blessed Jesus,
Be near us while we wake or sleep,
And safely keep.

2 Although thou art so holy,
And heav'n's almighty King;
Thou still wilt stoop to listen,
When e'er thy praise we sing.
O lead us ever by thy guiding hand,
Watch o'er us lest we stray,
O blessed Saviour keep us
In that narrow way. [Chorus]

3 O save us, Lord, from sinning,
Watch o'er us day by day;
And help us now to love thee,
O take our sins away.
O lead us ever by thy guiding hand,
Watch o'er us lest we stray,
O blessed Saviour keep us
In that narrow way. [Chorus]

4 And then, when thou dost call us
Unto our heav'nly home;
We gladly then will answer,
"O Saviour, Lord, we come."
O lead us ever by thy guiding hand,
Watch o'er us lest we stray,
O blessed Saviour keep us
In that narrow way. [Chorus]
