Words of hymn, “Neighbours on the narrow road”
Neighbours on the narrow road,
Stumbling where our Master trod,
As we take each other’s hand
Know we’re in the hands of God.
When I’ve fallen on the way,
Bruised and lost in self‐despair,
Will you hearten me to walk
Trusting in our Father’s care?
Daily strength we shall receive:
This, the Holy Spirit’s gift,
Grows in each when shared with all –
Let me then your burden lift.
God is watching all our steps,
Willing nothing but our good,
Present, though our eyes be blind,
In the mist and fire and flood.
When we reach the final hill,
And our Father’s call await,
We are certain of his love;
Neighbour, let us celebrate!
Margaret Batty (1927–2016)
