O Master, Let Me Walk with Thee

Representative Text

1 O Master, let me walk with thee
In lowly paths of service free;
Tell me thy secret, help me bear
The strain of toil, the fret of care.

2 Help me the slow of heart to move
By some clear, winning word of love;
Teach me the wayward feet to stay,
And guide them in the homeward way.

3 Teach me thy patience; still with thee
In closer, dearer company,
In work that keeps faith sweet and strong,
In trust that triumphs over wrong.

4 In hope that sends a shining ray
Far down the future's broad'ning way,
In peace that only thou canst give,
With thee, O Master, let me live.


1 Contigo, Cristo quiero andar,
y en tu servicio trabajar;
dime el secreto de saber
llevar mi vida con poder.

2 Enséñame cómo alcanzar
al que yo debo rescatar;
sus pies anhelo encaminar
en sendas que van a tu hogar

3 Enséñame paciente a ser;
contigo que halle mi placer,
que crezca en fuerza espiritual
y en fe que venza todo mal.

4 Dame esperanza para que
pueda el futuro ver con fe.
Para poder tu paz gozar,
contigo, Cristo, quiero andar.

He wrote "O Master, let me walk with thee" in 1879. Mary Louise VanDyke… Go to person page >
