1 Take Thou my hand, and lead me—
Choose Thou my way!
“Not as I will,” O Father,
Teach me to say.
What tho’ the storms may gather,
Thou knowest best;
Safe in Thy holy keeping,
There would I rest.

2 Take Thou my hand, and lead me—
Lord, I am Thine!
Fill with Thy Holy Spirit
This heart of mine:
Then in the hour of trial
Strong shall I be—
Ready to do, or suffer,
Dear Lord, for Thee.

3 Take Thou my hand, and lead me,
Lord, as I go;
Into Thy perfect image
Help me to grow.
Still in Thine own pavilion
Shelter Thou me:
Keep me, O Father, keep me,
Close, close to Thee!
