[G7] Keep Thou my feet; I [D7] do not ask to [G7] see [C] The distant [F] scene; one step [C] enough [G7] for [C] me. I was not ever thus, nor prayed that Thou Shouldst lead me on; I loved to choose and see my path; but now Lead Thou me on. I loved the garish day, and, in spite of fears, Pride ruled my will: remember not past years.
