O Thou great Friend to all the sons




O Thou great Friend
to all the sons of men,
Who once appeared
in humblest guise below,
Sin to rebuke, to break
the captive’s chain,
To call the brethren forth
from want and woe.


Thee would I sing:
Thy truth is still the light
Which guides the nations
groping on their way,
Stumbling and falling
in disastrous night,
Yet hoping ever for the perfect day.


Yes, Thou art still the Life;
Thou art the Way
The holiest know—Light,
Life and Way of Heav’n;
And they who dearest hope
and deepest pray
Toil by the truth, life,
way that Thou hast given.


---Alternative verses---


We look to Thee!
Thy truth is still the light
Which guides the nations
groping on their way,
Stumbling and falling
in disastrous night,
Yet hoping ever for the perfect day.
