Those whose arm has been my stay
All along my pilgrim way,
Let my prayer ascend to thee,
Blessèd Lord, take care of me.

Refrain

Blessèd Lord, take care of me,
Let Thy love my shelter be,
Till I wake in Heav’n with Thee;
Blessèd Lord, take care of me.

Let me hold Thy hand in mine,
Let me hear Thy voice divine;
Like a dove I fly to thee,
Blessèd Lord, take care of me.

Refrain

On the weary voyage of life,
Thro’ its toil, its care and strife,
O’er a dark and stormy sea,
Blessèd Lord, take care of me.

Refrain

Thou my hope, my life, my all,
When the shades of evening fall,
May Thy staff my comfort be,
Blessèd Lord, take care of me.

Refrain
