Daniel B. Towner (1850–1919)


Blessèd Sav­ior, help us dai­ly,
As we seek Thy will to do;
Lead and guide us, walk be­side us,
Keep us loy­al, firm and true.


Faithful, ear­nest, glad and lov­ing,
Growing bet­ter day by day;
Hearts be stea­dy, hands be rea­dy,
Jesus walks along the way.

As we pledge our true en­dea­vor,
May we trust in Thee alone;
Oh, be near us, strength­en, cheer us,
May our hearts be all Thine own.


Help us, Lord, to do each du­ty,
Bless the work we un­der­take;
Make us pray­er­ful, make us care­ful,
Hear, and help for Je­sus’ sake.
