Representative Text

1 Thou, Lord, my path shalt choose
And guide shalt be!
What shall I fear to lose
While I have Thee?

This be my portion blest,
On my Redeemer’s breast,
In peaceful trust to rest;
He cares for me.

2 Sweet words of peace and love
Whisper’d to me!
Bearing my soul above
Life’s troubled sea! [Chorus]

3 To Thee, the only wise,
Whatever be,
I will lift up mine eyes
Joyful to Thee. [Chorus]
