Lyrics

Father, guide me, lest I fall,
Fear and darkness doth appall;
Ever, ever guide my feet,
Till I reach Thy refuge sweet.

Refrain

Father, guide me, ever guide me,
Lead me lest from Thee I stray;
Father, guide me, lead and guide me,
Father, guide me all the way.

Father, ever guide my hands,
Let them do Thine own commands;
May they ever do Thy will,
Duty ever to fulfill;

Refrain

Father, ever guide my voice,
Let Thy praise e’er be its choice;
Keep it ever pure for me,
Let it sing Thy grace so free.

Refrain

Father, guide them all my life;
Guide me through all care and strife;
Guide me with thine own dear hand,
Till I reach the better land.
