        1. Lord, lead the way the Savior went,
        By lane and cell obscure,
        And let love's treasure still be spent,
        Like His, upon the poor.

        2. Like Him, through scenes of deep distress,
        Who bore the world's sad weight,
        We in their crowded loneliness
        Would seek the desolate.

        3. For Thou hast placed us side by side
        In this wide world of ill;
        And that Thy followers may be tried,
        The poor are with us still.

        4. Mean are all offerings we can make;
        But Thou hast taught us, Lord,
        If given for the Savior's sake,
        They lose not their reward.
