Christ of the upward way my Guide divine




Christ of the upward way,
my Guide divine,
Where Thou hast set Thy feet,
may I place mine;
And move and march
wherever Thou hast trod,
Keeping face forward
up the hill of God.


Give me the heart to hear
Thy voice and will,
That without fault or fear
I may fulfill
Thy purpose with
a glad and holy zest,
Like one who would not
bring less than his best.


Give me the eye to see
each chance to serve,
Then send me strength to rise
with steady nerve,
And leap at once
with kind and helpful deed,
To the sure succor of a soul in need.


Give me the good stout arm
to shield the right,
And wield Thy sword of truth
with all my might,
That, in the warfare
I must wage for Thee,
More than a victor I may ever be.


Christ of the upward way,
my Guide divine,
Where Thou hast set Thy feet,
may I place mine;
And when Thy last call comes,
serene and clear,
Calm may my answer be,
“Lord, I am here.”
