1Lord, most holy, God most mighty,
Let our cry come unto Thee:
Save from perils all who journey
O’er the land, and on the sea,
’Neath the shadow of Thy wing
All our dear ones sheltering.
2Thou, Who didst sustain Thy people
As they wandered in the wild,
Shielding them from instant danger
Or when crafty foe beguiled;
Still protect Thine Israel;
Thou their Keeper, all is well.
3In their going, in their coming,
At all times, in every place,
From all hurt to soul and body
As they run their earthly race;
Guardian, Who dost never sleep,
Those we love in safety keep.
4Pilgrims, sojourners, and strangers,
We, as all our fathers were,
Having no abiding city,
To Jerusalem repair;
Bring us– all life’s journeys o’er,
There to dwell forevermore. Amen.
Psalm37:5Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
