Guide my footsteps, Father,
Lead me lest I stray;
Let Thy hand unerring
Point out all my way.
When the road is dreary,
And my soul is sad,
When my heart is weary,
Do Thou make me glad.

Refrain

Be my rock and fortress,
Be my strength and stay;
Like a tender shepherd lead me,
Lead me safely all the way.

As I journey onward
To the home above;
All my pathway shelter
With Thy wings of love.
’Neath them my pavilion,
Naught can me alarm.
Shining sun, or shadow,
Neither worketh harm.

Refrain

Guide my footsteps, Father,
Night draws on apace;
Working hours of brightness
To the dark give place.
Guide my footsteps, Father,
What have I to fear?
Thou my joyful portion,
Thou my guide sincere!

Refrain
