Guided gently by Your hand.

Before Your majesty, our solemn vow.

In Your love, we find our place.
Through trials and joys, in You we rest,
By Your guidance, forever blessed.

Fill us with wisdom from above.

In Your hands, our hearts we bear.
With every breath, may we proclaim,
The glory of Your holy name.
