Lord, Do Thou Guide Me
By Alice Lucas
   When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shall not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.—Isaiah xliii. 2.

LORD, do Thou guide me on my pilgrim way,
Then shall I be at peace, whate’er betide me;
Then morn is dark, the clouds hang low and gray,
    Lord, do Thou guide me.
Let not the mists of sin from Thee divide me,        5
But pierce their gloom with mercy’s golden ray,
Then shall I know that Thou in love hast tried me.
    Lord, do Thou guide me.
O’er rugged paths be Thou my staff and stay,
Beneath Thy wings from storm and tempest hide me,        10
Through life to death, through death to heavenly day.
    Lord, do Thou guide me.
