“Ask for the old paths … and walk therein.” Jer. 6. 16

J. Newton   L.M.

1
By faith in Christ I walk with God,
With heaven my journey’s end in view;
Supported by his staff and rod,
My road is safe and pleasant too.

2
I travel through a desert wide,
Where many round me blindly stray;
But he vouchsafes to be my guide,
And will not let me miss my way.

3
Though snares and dangers throng my path,
And earth and hell my course withstand,
I triumph over all by faith,
Guarded by his almighty hand.

4
With him sweet converse I maintain;
Great as he is, I dare be free;
I tell him all my grief and pain,
And he reveals his love to me.

5
Some cordial from his word he brings,
Whene’er my feeble spirit faints;
At once my soul revives and sings,
And yields no more to sad complaints.
