While laboring here, dear Sav­ior, be near
And keep us by day and night;
O bless Thou us all whatever befall,
And tenderly guide us aright!


O help us each day, our Sav­ior, we pray,
Thou knowest we’re weak and tempted to roam;
O guide us aright, Thou glo­ri­ous light,
And crown us in Heav’n, Thy home!

Hosannas we sing, to Je­sus, our king,
Who died on the cross to save
From sin and its woes, His friends and His foes,
O conqueror of death and the grave!


O Fa­ther of might, now guide us aright,
And keep us from sin alway;
When life here is done, thro’ faith in Thy Son,
Receive us to glo­ry for aye!
