Sung during the Sunday worship at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, London (Spurgeon’s).
Hymn 544 from our hymn book, Psalms & Hymns of Reformed Worship.
BE with me, Lord, where’er I go;
Teach me what Thou wouldst have me do;
Govern whate’er I think or say;
Direct me in the narrow way.
Work in me, lest I harbour pride,
Lest I in my own strength confide;
Show me my weakness, let me see
I have my power, my all, from Thee.
Assist and teach me how to pray;
Incline my nature to obey;
What Thou abhorrest let me flee,
And only love what pleases Thee.
