Keep Thou my steps, O Lord,
Lest I should stray,
Forgetful of Thy Word,
And lose my way.

Refrain

Keep Thou, O Lord,
And guard me every hour
Till I am safe
Beyond the tempter’s power.

Keep Thou my hand, O Lord,
Within Thine own,
And stay my wandering thoughts,
On Thee alone.

Refrain

Keep Thou my heart, O Lord,
For I am weak,
Yet all my fears depart,
If Thou but speak.

Refrain

Thou art my life, O Lord,
That I may be
In heart and will subdued,
Wholly to Thee.

Refrain
