Guide Of My Spirit On Its Devious Way

Guide of my spirit on its devious way,
Lord of my Life, O teach me how to pray!
Dark is the night, and widely may I roam
Light of my darkness, lead, O lead me home.

Venture of faith! how beautiful to dare
To fling my spirit sheer upon the air!
And never fear to fall, since Thou art strong,
And children of thy heart to thee belong.

High is the heart, when Thou art by its side;
Sure is the life that hath Thee for its Guide!
Gallant the will, as from its fearless quest
The homing soul at last shall sing to rest.
