First Line: Our feet have wandered from thy path
Last Line: In every soul a friend of thine.
Subject(s): Jesus Christ

Our feet have wandered from thy path,
Thou lowly Christ of Galilee,
Sweet prophet of the helping hand,
Meek Lord of love and sympathy.

Thy faith was but to walk with God
With humble heart and open mind,
But we have builded shrines of stone
In which to worship—spirit-blind!

We lift our heads in loveless prayers,
We glory in our well-wrought creed,
Though righteousness alone avails,
Though mercy is the only need.

Break down, O Christ, our heartless faiths,
And give to us that spirit fine
Which feels in thee a Comrade strong,
In every soul a friend of thine.
