Lyrics

Verse 1
Precious promise God hath given
To the weary passer by,
On the way from earth to heaven,
“I will guide thee with Mine eye.”

Chorus
I will guide thee, I will guide thee,
I will guide thee with Mine eye;
One the way from earth to heaven,
I will guide thee with Mine eye.

Verse 2
When temptations almost win thee,
And thy trusted watchers fly,
Let this promise ring withing thee,
“I will guide thee with Mine eye.”

Verse 3
When thy secret hopes have perished,
In the grave of years gone by,
Let this promise still be cherished,
“I will guide thee with Mine eye.”

Verse 4
When the shades of life are falling,
And the hour has come to die,
Hear thy trusty Pilot calling,
“I will guide thee with Mine eye.”
