Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example that you should follow in His steps.@1 Peter 2:21

Fife Edwin Moore, 1896 (🔊 pdf nwc).

In the pathway of my journey
I see steps that lead to God;
They’re the footsteps of my Savior,
Showing me the path He trod.

Refrain

Lead me, Savior, lead me ever,
Lead me, Jesus, all the way;
Keep me ever in Thy footsteps
Lest I from Thy pathway stray;
Keep me ever in Thy footsteps,
Lest I from Thy pathway stray.

Thou hast borne my every burden,
Borne death’s anguish on the tree;
All this hast Thou meekly suffered
E’en for my iniquity.

Refrain

Thou hast lived on earth for others,
Spent Thy life for us in love;
Thus would I my life be spending
Till I meet Thee, Lord, above.

Refrain
