Representative Text

1 Weary one, oppressed with care,
Wouldst thou from these trials flee?
Courage take, look up, be strong,
Step by step He leadeth thee.

Refrain:
Step by step, step by step,
Step by step He leadeth thee;
Step by step, step by step,
So thy Father leadeth thee.

2 Fear not, as a trembling child,
Dangers that may never be;
Only hold thy Father’s hand,
Step by step He leadeth thee. [Refrain]

3 Troubles that like mountains seem
Melt away like mist at sea;
Trust the everlasting arm,
Step by step He leadeth thee. [Refrain]

4 When the setting sun of life
Gilds with beauty mount and lea,
Passing to the spirit-land,
Step by step He leadeth thee. [Refrain]
