1. Father, lead me day by day,
    Ever in Thine own sweet way;
    Teach me to be pure and true;
    Show me what I ought to do.
  2. When in danger, make me brave;
    Make me know that Thou canst save;
    Keep me safe by Thy dear side;
    Let me in Thy love abide.
  3. When tempted to do wrong,
    Make me steadfast, wise, and strong;
    And when all alone I stand,
    Shield me with Thy mighty hand.
  4. May I do the good I know,
    Be Thy loving child below,
    Then at last go home to Thee,
    Evermore Thy child to be.
