Father Lead Me Day By Day

Father, lead me day by day,
Ever in Thine own good way;
Teach me to be pure and true,
Show me what I ought to do.

When in danger, make me brave,
Make me know that Thou canst save;
Keep me safely by Thy side;
Let me in Thy love abide.

When I’m tempted to do wrong,
Make me steadfast, wise, and strong;
And when all alone I stand,
Shield me with Thy mighty hand.

May I do the good I know,
Serving gladly here below;
When at last go home to Thee,
Evermore Thine own to be.
