But the Lord directs his steps.
There are many plans in a man’s heart,
Nevertheless the Lord’s counsel—that will stand.
Hymn: TLH 120, st. 2,5 :
Help us, O Lord! Behold We Enter
2. May every plan and undertaking
This year be all begun with Thee;
When I am sleeping or am waking,
Still let me know Thou art with me.
Abroad do Thou my footsteps guide,
At home be ever at my side.
5. Jesus, be with me and direct me;
Jesus, my plans and hopes inspire;
Jesus, from tempting thoughts protect me;
Jesus, be all my heart’s Desire;
Jesus, be in my thoughts all day
Nor suffer me to fall away.
