O Christ, You walked the road our wandr’ing feet must go. You faced with us temptations power and fought our ancient foe.
No bread of earth alone can fill our hung’ring hearts. Lord, help us seek Your living Word, the food Your grace imparts.
No blinding sign we ask, no wonder from above. Lord, help us place our trust alone in Your unswerving love.
When lures of easy gain with promise brightly shine, Lord, help us seek Your kingdom first; our will with Yours align.
O Christ, You walked the road our wand’ring feet must go. Stay with us through temptation’s hour to fight our ancient foe.
Hymn text by Herman Stuempfle, Jr. 1923-2007
“Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall. No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it. Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.” 1 Corinthians 10:12-14.
