Lord, Thy Children Guide And Keep


Lord, Thy
children guide
and keep,
As with feeble
steps they
press
On the pathway
rough and
steep
Through the
weary
wilderness.
Holy Jesus,
day by day,
Lead us in the
narrow way.
There are
stony ways to
tread;
Give the
strength we
sorely lack.
There are
tangled paths
to thread;
Light us, lest
we miss the
track.
Holy Jesus,
day by day,
Lead us in the
narrow way.There are
sandy wastes
that lie
Cold and
sunless, vast
and drear,
Where the
feeble faint
and die;
Grant us grace
to persevere.
Holy Jesus,
day by day,
Lead us in the
narrow way.There are
soft and
flowery glades
Decked with
golden fruited
trees,
Sunny slopes
and scented
shades;
Keep us, Lord,
from slothful
ease.
Holy Jesus,
day by day,
Lead us in the
narrow way.Upward
still to purer
heights!
Onward yet to
scenes more
blest,
Calmer
regions,
clearer
lights,
Till we reach
the promised
rests
Holy Jesus,
day by day,
Lead us in the
narrow way.
