O Christ, You walked the road… (LSB 424)

  1. O Christ, You walked the road
    Our wand’ring feet must go.
    You faced with us temptation’s pow’r
    And fought our ancient foe.
  2. No bread of earth alone
    Can fill our hung’ring hearts.
    Lord, help us seek Your living Word,
    The food Your grace imparts.
  3. No blinding sign we ask,
    No wonder from above.
    Lord, help us place our trust alone
    In Your unswerving love.
  4. When lures of easy gain
    With promise brightly shine,
    Lord, help us seek Your kingdom first;
    Our wills with Yours align.
  5. O Christ, You walked the road
    Our wand’ring feet must go.
    Stay with us through temptation’s hour
    To fight our ancient foe.

Herman G. Stuempfle Jr. 1923-2007

  1. O Herre Jesus Christ,
    Du gingst den Weg voran.
    Für uns besiegtest Du den Tod,
    ziehst uns nun himmelan.
  2. Des Bäckers frisches Brot
    stillt nicht der Sünder Not.
    Erst Deines Freispruchs Lösewort
    bringt uns zurück ins Lot.
  3. Nicht Zeichen blendend weiss,
    nicht Wunderwerke Schein,
    vielmehr schenk uns, o Herre Gott,
    Deim Wort zu trauen allein.
  4. Wenn dicke Prämie winkt,
    und leichte Beute ruft,
    mach, dass Dein Reich komme zuerst,
    Dein Wille unsern trumpft.
  5. O Herre Jesus Christ,
    Du gingst den Weg voran.
    Steh uns bei in der letzten Not,
    und bring uns himmelan!
