1 O Saviour mine, who now beholdest me,
‘Tis heav’n below Thy love to know;
My feet with joyful haste would follow Thee;
Lead Thou me on where’er I go.

Refrain:
Hold Thou me up, lead Thou me on,
My guide, my stay, o’er life’s dark way;
Hold Thou me up, lead Thou me on.
Shall be my pray’r from day to day.

2 O Saviour mine, whose wings o’ershadow me,
No Friend so near, no name so dear;
Thou art my hope of immortality,
Thy voice alone my heart can cheer. [Refrain]

3 O Saviour mine, how great Thy love to me!
Its beams divine, how bright they shine!
Hold Thou me up, let me abide in Thee;
Keep Thou my hand still firm in Thine. [Refrain]

4 Hold Thou me up, and, when Thou callest me
Thy robe to wear, Thy joy to share,
I’ll sings and praise through all eternity
Thy grace, Thy love, that brought me there. [Refrain]
