Thy Word, O Lord

By Albert Midlane 1825 - 1909

1. Thy Word, O Lord, Thy precious Word alone, Can lead me on;
By this, until the darksome night be gone, Lead Thou me on!
Thy Word is light, Thy Word is life and power;
By it, oh, guide me in each trying hour.

2. Whate’er my path, led by the Word, ’tis good, Oh, lead me on!
Be my poor heart Thy blessèd Word’s abode, Lead Thou me on!
Thy Holy Spirit gives the light to see,
And leads me to Thy Word, close following Thee.

3. Led by aught else, I tread a devious way, Oh, lead me on!
Speak, Lord, and help me ever to obey, Lead Thou me on!
My every step shall then be well defined,
And all I do according to Thy mind.
