Divine Guidance.

Lead Thou me on. My path is steep;
Beset with foes I cannot see{{subst:--}}
Father Thy child in safety keep,
My strength is all from Thee.

When clouds and darkness around me close,
And fierce temptations sorely press,
Hold Thou my hand; repel my foes;
With calm endurance bless.

Forgive my timid, faithless fears;
Let trusting love my portion be,
Till safe from conflicts, doubts & tears,
I rest alone with thee.

E.H. Dewart.
