O God of bethel, by whose hand
your children still are fed;
who through this earthly pilgrimage
your people safely led:
2. Our vows, our prayers, we now present
before your gracious throne;
as you have been their faithful God,
so always be our own!
3. Through each perplexing path of life
our wandering footsteps guide;
give us today our daily bread
and for our needs provide.
4. O spread your covering wings around
till all our wanderings cease,
and at our heavenly Father’s home
our souls arrive in peace.
