Lyrics

Savior, blessèd Savior,
We would workers be,
Walking in Thy presence
Ever close to Thee;
In our heav’nward journey,
Thro’ this world below,
Gently guide and teach us,
All the truth to know.

Savior, blessèd Savior,
May we ever be
Loving, kind and gentle,
More and more like Thee;
Make us ever helpful
To the sad and lone,
Bringing them the sunshine,
Pointing to Thy throne.
