564. O God of Bethel, by whose hand

1 O God of Bethel, by whose hand
your people still are fed,
who through this weary pilgrimage
have all our forebears led:

2 our vows, our prayers, we now present
before your throne of grace;
God of our people, be the God
of each succeeding race.

3 Through each perplexing path of life
our wandering footsteps guide;
give us each day our daily bread,
for all our needs provide.

4 O spread your covering wings around,
till all our wanderings cease,
and at our Father's loved abode
our souls arrive in peace.
