Representative Text

1. Savior, in Thy holy keeping,
Take, O take our hearts anew;
Guard us from the world’s temptation,
All the pilgrim journey thro’.

Refrain
By Thy grace, O Lord, defend us,
While as strangers here we roam,
In Thy tender mercy lead us
Till we reach our heav’nly home.

2. Let our faith in Thee be centered,
Growing brighter day by day;
Let our hopes be clear and steadfast,
All along our homeward way. [Refrain]

3. Let our love be deep and fervent,
Like to Thine, so full and free,
And at last, when Heav’n we enter,
Let Thy name our password be. [Refrain]
