1. Teach me, Lord,
To follow in your footsteps,
So I may grow, through prayer,
Much more like you.
2. Train me, Lord,
To face each test with courage,
For then I will rejoice
In all I do.
3. Help me, Lord,
To carry my cross daily,
No matter what you send.
4. Guide me, Lord,
Through death’s dark, lonely valley,
So I may rest in you
Beyond life’s end.
