Slow to anger, full of kindness,
Rich in mercy, Lord, Thou art,
Wash me in Thy healing fountain,
Take away my sinful heart.
I would go the pilgrim~ez_rsquo~s journey,
Onward to the promised land;
I would reach the golden city,
There to join the angel band.
Thou wilt never, never leave me,
If I give myself to Thee,
Teach, O teach me how to praise Thee,
Tell me what my life should be.
May Thy ever gracious spirit,
Lead me in the way of truth,
May I learn the voice of wisdom,
In the early days of youth.
O! how sweet to rest confiding,
On Thy Word that cannot fail,
Strong in Thee, whate~ez_rsquo~er my trials,
Through Thy grace I must prevail.
