Description

SATB and soprano solo. A cappella, with optional organ. Text by Bernard Barton (1784-1849).  A lovely Eucharistic piece.

Lamp of our feet, whereby we trace
our path when wont to stray;
stream from the font of heavenly grace,
brook by the traveler'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 heavenly teaching turn,
with simple, childlike hearts.
