Be with me, Lord, wherever I go;
Teach me what thou wouldst have me do;
Suggest whatever I think or say;
Direct me in thy narrow way.

Prevent me lest I harbor pride
Lest I in my own strength confide;
Show me my weakness,
Let me see I have my power, my all from thee.

Assist and teach me how to pray,
Incline my nature to obey;
What thou abhorest let me flee,
And only love what pleases thee.
