Representative Text

1 Saviour, walk Thou still beside us;
Weak and wayward are our feet;
Safely thro’ the mazes guide us
Till we reach Thy mercy set.
Precious Saviour, Precious Saviour,
Give us of Thy bread to eat.

2 Tender are Thy words of blessing,
Cheering us as on we go;
All our sins to Thee confessing,
Wash our souls as white as snow.
Precious Saviour, Precious Saviour,
Make us Thine where here below.

3 Lord, impart Thy great salvation,
Flowing full and free to all;
Short will be our earth-probation;
Fit us for the heavenly call.
Precious Saviour, Precious Saviour,
Be to us our all in all.
