C.M.


1
OUR God is light: and though we go
Across a trackless wild,
Jesus, Thy footsteps ever show
The path for every child.
2
As every step afresh we prove
How surley Thou dost guide,
In faithful and forbearing love
Which never turns aside.
3
Thou weariest not, most gracious Lod,
Through we may weary grow;
In season, the sustaining word
Thou giv'st our hearts to know.
4
Death's bitter waters met our thirst,
But Thou didst make them sweet;
Then on our gladdened vision burst
God's shady, cool retreat.
5
The manna and the springing well
Suffice for every need;
And Eshcol's grapes the story tell
Of where Thy path doth lead.

J.N. Darby
