Save me from sin, my blessèd Lord, I pray,
Save me from sin, thro’ all the weary day;
From foes without, from doubts and fears within,
Oh, heav’nly Father, save, I pray from sin.

Save me from sin, when tempted sore and tried,
When worldly joys allure on every side;
When all seems bright, and life one joyous day,
Then, heav’nly Father, save from sin, I pray.

Save me from sin, when life seems dark and drear,
Oh, let me feel Thy tender presence near;
Help me to trust when darkness veils my way,
Oh, heav’nly Father, save from sin, I pray.

Save me from sin, when evening shadows fall,
Hold Thou my hand, on Thee alone I call;
Guide Thou my steps, thro’ all the darksome way,
Then, heav’nly Father, save at last, I pray.
