1 Let me walk in the path which my Savior hath trod,
Let me follow so close by His side;
For by trusting in Him I am happy and free,
In the fold of His love let me hide.

Refrain:
In His love let me hide,
In His love let me hide;
For by trusting in Him, I am happy and free,
In the fold of His love let me hide.

2 Let my heart e’er be fixed on my treasures above,
Let the pleasures of earth fade away;
For there’s nothing so lovely as Jesus to me,
Let me ne’er from His love go astray. [Refrain]

3 Do you ask why I love Him the dearest of all,
Why so freely I yield unto Him?
’Tis because He has loved me, and died on the cross,
My poor soul lost in sin to redeem. [Refrain]

4 It is blessed to serve Him and do His good will,
For so precious to me is His love;
Let my talents and time all be given to Him,
Till He calls me to meet Him above. [Refrain]
