601. O Master, let me walk with thee

1 O Master, let me walk with thee
in lowly paths of service free;
thy secret tell; help me to bear
the strain of toil, the fret of care.

2 Help me the slow of heart to move
by some clear winning word of love;
teach me the wayward feet to stay
and guide them in the homeward way.

3 Teach me thy patience; still with thee
in closer, dearer company,
in work that keeps faith sweet and strong,
in trust that triumphs over wrong,

4 in hope that sends a shining ray
far down the future's broadening way,
in peace that only thou canst give,
with thee, O Master, let me live.
