Representative Text

1 Thou whose arm has been my stay
All along my pilgrim way,
Let my prayer ascend to thee,
Blessèd Lord, take care of me.

Refrain:
Blessed Lord, take care of me,
Let Thy love my shelter be,
Till I wake in heav’n with Thee;
Blessèd Lord, take care of me.

2 Let me hold Thy hand in mine,
Let me hear Thy voice divine;
Like a dove I fly to thee,
Blessèd Lord, take care of me. [Refrain]

3 On the weary voyage of life,
Thro’ its toil, its care and strife,
O’er a dark and stormy sea,
Blessèd Lord, take care of me. [Refrain]

4 Thou my hope, my life, my all,
When the shades of evening fall,
May Thy staff my comfort be,
Blessèd Lord, take care of me. [Refrain]
