Those Whose Arm Has Been My Stay


Those whose arm has been my stay
All along my pilgrim way,
Let my prayer ascend to thee,
Blessed Lord, take care of me.

Refrain
Blessed Lord, take care of me,
Let Thy love my shelter be,
Till I wake in Heav’n with Thee;
Blessed Lord, take care of me.

Let me hold Thy hand in mine,
Let me hear Thy voice divine;
Like a dove I fly to thee,
Blessed Lord, take care of me. [Refrain]

On the weary voyage of life,
Thro’ its toil, its care and strife,
O’er a dark and stormy sea,
Blessed Lord, take care of me. [Refrain]

Thou my hope, my life, my all,
When the shades of evening fall,
May Thy staff my comfort be,
Blessed Lord, take care of me. [Refrain]
