O MASTER, LET ME WALK WITH YOU
by Washington Gladden, 1879
O Master, let me walk with You
In lowly paths of service free;
Tell me Your secret, help me bear
The strain of toil, the fret of care.
Help me the slow of heart to move
By some clear winning word of love;
Teach me the wayward feet to stay,
And guide them in the homeward way.
Teach me Your patience; still with You
In closer dearer company,
In work that keeps faith sweet and strong,
In trust that triumphs over wrong.
In hope that sends a shining ray
Far down the future’s broadening way,
In peace that only You can give,
With You, O Master, let me live
