Dear Savior, through life's pathway as I stray,
Forgetful oft of thee,
Watch o'er me all along the weary way;
Oh Lord, remember me!
About the rugged path which I must tread
Apart from any friend,
The winds rage fiercely, and the clouds o'erhead
With deepest darkness blend.
There in the gloom before me gleams a star,
With clear and tender light;
I know it is Thy City, that afar
Breaks dimly on my sight.
O guide me! guard me safely from the fear
That 'round my path may be;
Thy presence will the gloom and sorrow cheer,
Dear Lord, remember me!
