1.  Show us thy way, O God!

Our feet have wandered far;

We seek the path thy saints have trod,

Where peace and beauty are.

2.  Teach us thy word, O God!

Subdue earth’s racking din;

That we may hear at home, abroad,

The still, small voice within.

3.  Tell us thy will, O God!

Our own we cannot trust.

We wait the summons of thy rod

To raise us from the dust.

4.  Thy way, thy word, thy will,

These are our surest guides

To bring us where thy Spirit still

In holiness abides.
