1 Be now our guardian and our guide,
be near us when we call;
uphold us when our footsteps slide,
and raise us when we fall.

2 The world, the flesh and Satan dwell
around the path we tread;
O save us from the snares of hell,
Deliverer from the dead!

3 And if we tempted are to sin,
and evil powers are strong;
be present, Lord, keep watch within
and save our souls from wrong.

4 Still let us always watch and pray,
and know that we are frail;
that if the tempter cross our way,
yet he shall not prevail.
