Dearest Lord We Come To Thee

Dearest Lord, we come to Thee
Ignorant, but Thou wilt teach us.
We are poor, but graciously
With Thy gifts Thou wilt enrich us.

We are weak, but Thou, O Lord,
Mercifully wilt defend us,
And we know it from Thy word,
That Thy Spirit Thou wilt send us.

Be our Shepherd good! O may
We obey Thy voice forever!
Dark and dangerous is our way:
Guide Thou us to life’s blest river!
