Savior, blessèd Sav­ior,
We would workers be,
Walking in Thy presence
Ever close to Thee;
In our heav’nward journey,
Thro’ this world below,
Gently guide and teach us,
All the truth to know.

Savior, blessèd Sav­ior,
May we ever be
Loving, kind and gentle,
More and more like Thee;
Make us ever helpful
To the sad and lone,
Bringing them the sunshine,
Pointing to Thy throne.
