1 Steady and true, in the upward way,
Never to falter, or faint, or fear;
So would I travel from day to day,
Knowing my Lord is near.

Refrain:
Steady and true as the stars that shine,
So would I keep this heart of mine,
Fit for a gift to my Lord divine;
Steady, steady and true.

2 Steady and true thro’ the sunny days,
Helping my brother to rise and smile;
Scattering joy in some lonely way,
Cheering some heart the while. [Refrain]

3 Steady and true when the darkness falls,
Following Christ as my beacon light;
Keeping the path where His dear voice calls,
Whether ‘tis noon or night. [Refrain]
