O Master, Let Me Walk with Thee

Date recorded: February 05, 2012


Words by: Washington Gladden


Music by: Henry P. Smith

O Master, let me walk with Thee
In lowly paths of service free;
Tell me Thy secret, help me bear
The strain of toil, the fret of care.

Help me the slow of heat 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 Thy patience!  Still with Thee
In closer, dearer company,
In work that keeps faith sweet and strong,
In trust that triumphs o’er wrong.

In hope that sends a shining ray
Far down the future’s broad’ning way,
In peace that only Thou canst give,
With Thee, O Master, let me live.
