I cannot see, I do not know the way,
But having Thee, no other guide I need;
The darkest night shall be as safe as day,
And stony paths to sweetest shelter lead.


Thou art my way, dear Lord, Thou art my way,
The darkest night, with Thee is bright as day;
I’ll trust in Thee, content if I can say
Thou art my way, Thou art my way.

What tho’ the sunshine on my path falls not,
If but Thy loving smile be not withdrawn;
The clouds that darken now my earthly lot,
Will only make more bright the heav’nly dawn.


Holding Thy hand, for me once wounded sore,
I’m not alone, tho’ earthly friends are gone;
And should I stumble ere the journey’s o’er,
Thou wilt not let me go, for Thou art strong!


O, Jesus, Master, Friend, when Thou art near,
Sweet peace I have, and joy beyond compare;
Where Thou dost lead, I’ll go without a fear,
And in Thy strength the heaviest cross will bear.
