When thirst for power or for gold
Hath led our souls astray;
When, blind, by blinder guides we’re told,
“Lo, here thou’lt find the way;”
Look down, O Father, from above;
Set us from error free;
Teach us to serve Thee here in love,
And find our home in Thee.
When faith Thy guidance humbly takes,
And seeks Thy will to do,
Clear light upon our pathway breaks,
The world to guide us through.
Thy spirit send, our souls to keep;
Thy wisdom make our own;
And though our way leads through the deep,
We wander not alone.
