Hymn 244 - "It is not with uncertain step"


It is not with uncertain step

We tread our desert way;

A well-known voice has called us up

To everlasting day. 


The voice of Him who here has trod

Alone the trackless way

(And marked the road which leads to God),

Where once we, lost, did stray.


 He leaves us not alone to trace

Our path across the waste;

But leads us still, with living grace,

Homeward, whereto we haste. 


 See! open stands the heav'nly door,

Whence glory shines below,

To light the way He's gone before,

The coming bliss to show.


In patience then we tread the road—

Our faith and courage tried—

And trust the love which bears each load,

Our hearts from grief to hide.
