Walking with thee, my God

Representative Text

1 Walking with Thee, my God,
Saviour benign,
Daily confer on me
Converse divine;
Jesus in Thee restored,
Brother and blessed Lord,
Let it be mine.

2 Walking with Thee, my God,
Like as a child
Leans on his father’s strength,
Crossing the wild;
And by the way is taught
Lessons of holy thought,
Faith undefiled.

3 Walking with Thee, my God,
Humbly with Thee,
Yet from all abject fear
Lovingly free;
E’en as a friend with friend,
Cheered to the journey’s end,
Walking with Thee.
