O Take my Hand, Dear Father
Julia Hausmann, 1862, tr. by H. Brueckner; German text
|O take my hand, dear Father, and lead Thou me,|
Till at my journey's ending I dwell with Thee.
Alone I cannot wander one single day,
So do Thou guide my footsteps on life's rough way.
2. O cover with Thy mercy my poor, weak heart,
3. Though oft Thy power but faintly may stir my soul,
