275. Our God Is Light: and Though We Go

by Mary Bowley
Our God is light: and though we go
Across a trackless wild,
Our Jesus' footsteps ever show
The path for every child.
1 John 1:5; Psalm 107:4; 1 Peter 2:21
At every step afresh we prove
How sure our heavenly Guide;
The faithful and forbearing love
That never turns aside.
John 16:13; 2 Timothy 2:13
Thou weariest not, most gracious Lord,
Though we may weary grow;
In season, the sustaining word
Thou giv'st our hearts to know.
Isaiah 40:28-31
Death's bitter waters met our thirst,
Thy cross has made them sweet;
Then on our gladdened vision burst
God's shady, cool retreat.
Exodus 15:23-25
Through scenes of strife, by graves of lust,
Our desert path has been;
But here, O Lord, we've learned to trust
And love Thee, though unseen.
Numbers 20:1-13; Numbers 11:34; 1 Peter 1:8
The manna and the springing well
Suffice for every need;
And Eschol's grapes the story tell
Of where Thy path doth lead.
Deuteronomy 8:3; Numbers 21:16-17
