1.  Lord, lead the way the Savior went,

By lane and cell obscure,

And let love’s treasures still be spent,

Like His, upon the poor.

2.  Like Him, thro’ scenes of deep distress,

Who bore the world’s sad weight,

We in their crowded loneliness

Would seek the desolate.

3.  For Thou hast placed us side by side

In this wide world of ill;

And that Thy foll’wers may be tried,

The poor are with us still.

4.  Mean are all off’rings we can make;

But Thou hast taught us, Lord,

If given for the Savior’s sake,

They lose not their reward.
