1. My Lord, my truth, my way,
[originally, Jesus, my truth, my way]
My sure, unerring light,
On Thee my feeble steps I stay,
Which Thou wilt guide aright.

2. My wisdom and my guide,
My counselor Thou art;
O never let me leave Thy side,
Or from Thy paths depart!

3. I lift my eyes to Thee,
Thou gracious, bleeding Lamb,
That I may now enlightened be,
And never put to shame.

4. Never will I remove
Out of Thy hands my cause;
But rest in Thy redeeming love,
And hang upon Thy cross.

5. Teach me the happy art
In all things to depend
On Thee; O never, Lord, depart,
But love me to the end!

6. Still stir me up to strive
With Thee in strength divine;
And every moment, Lord, revive
This fainting soul of mine.

7. Persist to save my soul
Throughout the fiery hour,
Till I am every whit made whole,
And show forth all thy power.

8. Through fire and water bring
Into the wealthy place;
And teach me the new song to sing,
When perfected in grace.

9. O make me all like Thee,
Before I hence remove!
Settle, confirm, and stablish me,
And build me up in love.

10. Let me Thy witness live,
When sin is all destroyed;
And then my spotless soul receive,
And take me home to God.
