Blessèd Savior, help us daily,
As we seek Thy will to do;
Lead and guide us, walk beside us,
Keep us loyal, firm and true.
Faithful, earnest, glad and loving,
Growing better day by day;
Hearts be steady, hands be ready,
Jesus walks along the way.
As we pledge our true endeavor,
May we trust in Thee alone;
Oh, be near us, strengthen, cheer us,
May our hearts be all Thine own.
Help us, Lord, to do each duty,
Bless the work we undertake;
Make us prayerful, make us careful,
Hear, and help for Jesus’ sake.
