Representative Text

In life’s morning, teach us Thy will, blessed Master,
Guard and guide us, lest we should go astray;
May we follow where’er Thy footsteps shall lead us,
And with gladness ever Thy voice obey.

1 Thro’ life’s morning in wisdom direst our footsteps,
Lest we fearing shall falter or faint by the way. [Refrain]

2 Grant, we pray Thee, that we may be true disciples,
Striving ever in some way Thy love to repay. [Refrain]

3 In Thy service our hearts shall be filled with gladness
And Thy blessing shall crown us at close of life’s day. [Refrain]
