1. Slow to anger, full of kindness,
Rich in mercy, Lord, Thou art,
Wash me in Thy healing fountain,
Take away my sinful heart.

I would go the pilgrim’s journey,
Onward to the promised land;
I would reach the golden city,
There to join the angel band.

2. Thou wilt never, never leave me,
If I give myself to Thee,
Teach, O teach me how to praise Thee,
Tell me what my life should be. [Refrain]

3. May Thy ever gracious Spirit,
Lead me in the way of truth,
May I learn the voice of wisdom,
In the early days of youth. [Refrain]

4. O! how sweet to rest confiding,
On Thy Word that cannot fail,
Strong in Thee, whate’er my trials,
Through Thy grace I must prevail. [Refrain]
