Lord, You Are My Hope And Stay

On the highway, in the byway,

at my work or home at play,

in my laughter and when I weep,

wide awake or sound asleep,

Lord, You be my constant Guide

in whatever me betide.

When You are near, I need not fear,

for my ev'ry plea You can hear.

Both in attitude or just talk,

in my daily tasks and walk,

when my foes become offensive

and should I grow defensive:

Lord, You be my faithful Guide,

keep me then from being snide.

Grant me love and grant me patience,

so I will, like You, be gracious.

Saviour, always help me to pray,

when with doubts I go astray.

Daily my faith You will renew,

each time I do come to You.

Lord, You are my trusted Guide,

take from me misguided pride.

With Your Spirit make me humble

and forgive me when I stumble.

God made man in His own image,

in my daily pilgrimage,

like a mirror image mold me,

so through me t is You they see.

Lord, You are my Hope and Stay,

that I always follow may.

Your grace to me is quite ample,

when I follow Your example.

Adrian Vermeulen-Miller.
