1037. Jesus, Help Me

1 Jesus, keep me every day,
When I work and when I play,
When I think and when I talk,
When I run and when I walk.

Refrain:
Keep me, Jesus, this I pray,
Lead me, keep me, every day.

2 Jesus, make me good and true
In the work I ought to do;
Hold me gently by the hand,
Till I reach the better land. [Refrain]

3 Blessed Jesus, let us know
How our busy feet should go;
Till at last in heav’n we say:
Jesus led us all the way. [Refrain]
