Hymn/Song Information

I dared not hope that Thou wouldst deign




I dared not hope that Thou
wouldst deign to come
And make this lowly
heart of mine Thy home,
That Thou wouldst deign,
O king of kings, to be
Een for one hour
a sojourner in me;
Yet art Thou always here
to help, and bless,
And lift the load
of my great sinfulness.


I dared not ever hope
for such a Guide
To walk with me my
faltering steps beside,
To help me when I fall,
and, when I stray,
Constrain me gently
to the better way:
Yet art Thou always
at my side to be
A Counsellor and Comforter to me.


I do not always go
where Thou dost lead,
I do not always
Thy soft whispers heed;
I follow other lights,
and, in my sin,
I vex with many
a slight my Friend within:
Yet dost Thou not,
though grieved, from me depart,
But guardest still
Thy place within my heart.
