US Hymn 627 Lamp of our feet – tune AMNS 245


Lamp of our feet, whereby we trace

our path when wont to stray;

stream from the fount of heav’nly grace,

brook by the traveller’s way;


bread of our souls, whereon we feed,

true manna from on high;

our guide and chart, wherein we read

of realms beyond the sky;


pillar of fire, through watches dark,

and radiant cloud by day;

when waves would whelm our tossing bark,

our anchor and our stay;


word of the ever-living God,

will of his glorious Son;

without thee how could earth be trod,

or heaven itself be won?


Lord, grant us all aright to learn

the wisdom it imparts;

and to its heav’nly teaching turn,

with simple, childlike hearts.
