O Master, let me walk with Thee

1
O Master, let me walk with Thee
  In lowly paths of service free;
Tell me Thy secret, help me bear
  The strain of toil, the fret of care.
2
Help me the slow of heart to move
  By some clear, winning word of love;
Teach me the wayward feet to stay,
  And guide them in the Godward way.
3
Teach me Thy patience; still with Thee
  In closer, dearer company,
In work that keeps faith sweet and strong,
  In trust that triumphs over wrong.
4
In hope that sends a shining ray
  Far down the future’s broad’ning way,
In peace that only Thou canst give,
  With Thee, O Master, let me live.

O Lord, just let me walk with Thee.

Tell me Thy secret, help me bear

The strain of toil, the fret of care.

Help me be better and better for Your glory.

Thank You Lord.

I love You Lord Jesus Christ.

The words and melody of this hymn draw me into a precious sense of fellowship with our dear Savior Jesus and touch my heart in a profound way.

Oh Lord Jesus!

Washington Gladden believed that Christians should be involved in the world's problems - and he wasn't afraid to say so. A newspaperman-turned-clergyman, he crusaded against injustice. He fought against the infamous Tweed Ring that controlled New York City politics. He objected to John D. Rockefeller's gift to his denomination's foreign mission board because of the millionaire's policies at Standard Oil. In his various churches, he often preached a social gospel, trying to rouse his congregation to the social and labor problems that were engulfing the country.

When Gladden wrote this hymn in 1879, he said the poem had no theological significance, but that it was an honest cry of human need and of the need for divine companionship. If our friendship with Jesus does not lead us to concern for our fellowman, then we'd better check to see how closely we are walking with the Master. - Great Songs of Faith by Brown & Norton
