These are the original lyrics (by Colin Fairclough) as found on Saytunes. The final version differs slightly:
Lord, the road is hard and long.
Lord, my friends say I am wrong.
Lord, I have no gifts to bring.
Lord, my faith is faltering.
Child, I walk the road with you.
Child, My friends forsook Me, too.
Child, your gift of self I ask.
Child, your faith will meet the task.
Lord, I will – but not today;
Can it be?
Child, this is a world astray,
Lord, take heart and will and all –
Child, your strength lies in My call:
Lord, Your words my ways attend,
Lord, Your Spirit is my Friend,
Lord, my life is now Your own,
Bound, yet free.
Lord, my faith has firmer grown.
Stay with me.
