Lyrics

Verse 1 Lamp of our feet! whereby we trace our path, when wont to stray; Stream from the fount of heav'nly grace! brook by the trav'ler's way! Verse 2 Bread of our souls! whereon we feed; true manna from on high! Our guide, and chart wherein we read of realms beyond the sky. Verse 3 Pillar of fire— through watches dark! or radiant cloud by day! When waves would whelm our tossing bark our anchor and our stay! Verse 4 Pole— star on life's tempestuous deep! beacon! when doubts surround; Compass! by which our course we keep; our deep sea— lead, to sound! Verse 5 Riches in poverty! our aid in every needful hour! Unshaken rock! the pilgrim's shade; the soldier's fortress tow'r. Verse 6 Our shield and buckler in the fight! vict'ry's triumphant palm! Comfort in grief! in weakness, might! in sickness, Gilead's balm. Verse 7 Childhood's preceptor! manhood's trust! old age's firm ally! Our hope—when we go down to dust, of immortality. Verse 8 Pure oracles of truth divine! unlike each fabled dream Given forth from Delphos' mystic shrine or groves of Academe! Verse 9 Word of the ever-living God! will of His glorious Son! Without Thee, how could earth be trod? or Heaven itself be won? Verse 10 Yet to unfold thy hidden worth, Thy mysteries to reveal, That Spirit which first gave thee forth, Thy volume must unseal!...
