408- Lord, Thy Children Guide

MIDI MP3 Partition

1
Lord, Thy children guide and keep,
As with feeble steps they press,
On the pathway rough and steep,
Through this weary wilderness:
Holy Jesus, day by day
Lead us in the narrow way.

2
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.

3
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.

4
Upward still to purer heights,
Onward yet to scenes more blest,
Calmer regions, clearer lights,
Till we reach the promised rest;
Holy Jesus, day by day
Lead us in the narrow way.
