When the sun has set and the night is on,
when the darkness falls and the light has gone,
you be my light, O Lord, and lead me on.
When I’m growing weak and my steps are slow,
when the hopes are bleak and I’ve strength no more,
you be my strength, O Lord, and lead me on.
When my eyes grow dim and I cannot see,
when a chance is slim of a friend for me,
you be my friend, O Lord, and lead me on.
