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