1 We need Thee, tender, faithful Guide,
Be ever near; with us abide;
From us temptation, doubt and fear remove,
And keep us in Thy love.
Search me, O God, my heart discern,
Try me, my very heart to learn;
See if in evil paths I stray,
And guide me in th’eternal way.
2 O may we follow day by day
The straight and narrow shining way,
That leadeth safely over care and strife
To everlasting life. [Refrain]
3 Lord, with Thine everlasting arm
Protect our souls from ev’ry harm;
Reveal Thyself in ev’ry passing hour,
And keep us in Thy pow’r. [Refrain]Source: Crowning Day, No. 6: A Book of Gospel Songs #154
