Hymn 217 - "Our God is light: and though we go"
Our God is light: and though we go
Across a trackless wild,
Jesus, Thy footsteps ever show
The path for every child.
At every step afresh we prove
How surely Thou dost guide,
In faithful and forbearing love
Which never turns aside.
Thou weariest not, most gracious Lord,
Though we may weary grow;
In season, the sustaining word
Thou giv'st our hearts to know.
Death's bitter waters met our thirst,
But Thou didst make them sweet;
Then on our gladdened vision burst
God's shady, cool retreat.
The manna and the springing well
Suffice for every need;
And Eshcol's grapes the story tell
Of where Thy path doth lead.
