temptations, toils, and dangers,
Lord, I know You'll be my guide.
You will help me when I stumble,
Because You're always by my side.
When I'm surrounded, Lord, by evil,
You will show me what is right,
Because I'm trusting in Your love, God,
Living by Your shining light.
Although weak is my power
To win against the devil's fight,
You will be there when I need You;
You will give me strength and might.
I've no power of my own, Lord,
Your hand in mine leads me through
My darkest hours of disappointments;
My accomplishments belong to You.
