Master, Let Me Walk With Thee
Rev. Washington Gladden, who wrote this beautiful hymn found in
most of our hymnals, is a distinguished Congregational clergyman.
Dr. Gladden has been an editor of the Independent, and
also Sunday Afternoon. It
was while he was editor of the latter magazine that he wrote the poem
from which his famous hymn was taken.
Master, Let Me Walk with Thee
O Master, let me walk with Thee
lowly paths of service free;
me Thy secret, help me bear
strain of toil, the fret of care.
Help me the slow of heart to move
some clear, winning word of love;
me the wayward feet to stay,
guide them in the homeward way.
Teach me Thy patience; still with Thee
closer, dearer company,
work that keeps faith sweet and strong,
trust that triumphs over wrong,
In hope that sends a shining ray
down the futureís broadíning way,
peace that only Thou canst give,
Thee, O Master, let me live.
Paul, Steve Greenís MIDI Hymnal, (Oak Harbor, WA: Logos
