Father of light! conduct our feet
Through life’s dark, dangerous road;
Let each advancing step still bring
Us nearer to our God.
Let heaven-eyed prudence be our guide;
And when we go astray,
Recall our feet from folly’s paths
To wisdom’s better way.
That heavenly wisdom from above
And let it guard, and guide, and warm,
And penetrate each heart;
Till it shall lead us to Thyself,
Fountain of bliss and love!
And all our darkness be dispersed
In endless light above.
