Thy Word, O Lord to us is sweet,
A lamp to guide our way­ward feet,
And light the way that leads to God,
By wea­ry ones so oft­en trod.
When sha­dows fall, and life seems drear,
When dark­est gloom sur­rounds us here,
Be Thou our guide, be Thou our stay,
And lead us in the nar­row way,
The bless­èd way.

O Je­sus, Lord, teach us to pray;
Help us to serve Thee day by day;
And by Thy Book of truth di­vine,
May we be pure and whol­ly Thine;
O light of life, O light of love,
The Spir­it’s gift, sent from above,
We’ll fol­low where Thou leadst the way,
And safe­ly reach the realms of day,
The glo­ri­ous day.
