Show us Thy way, O Lord,
Show us Thy way,
Alone we cannot go,
For we would stray;
Thy way is always bright,
Thy path is always right,
Keep us by Thy great might,
O Lord divine.

Show us Thy way, O Lord,
Show us Thy way,
We’ll follow none but Thee,
Cost what it may;
Our way would lead us down,
Our way is always wrong,
Then lead us, is our song,
O Lord divine.

Show us Thy way, O Lord,
Show us Thy way,
Our God, we’ll trust but Thee,
Hear while we pray;
Purge us from every sin,
Cleanse us, without, within,
Make us completely clean,
O Lord divine.

Show us Thy way, O Lord,
Show us Thy way,
Brighter the pathway glows,
As we obey;
When Thou dost call us home,
Grant us Thy glad well done,
And praise be Thee alone,
O Lord divine.
