554 – O Let Me Walk With Thee
Major Key: G
O let me walk with Thee, my God,
As Enoch walked in days of old;
Place Thou my trembling hand in Thine,
And sweet communion with me hold;
E’en though the path I may not see,
Yet, Jesus, let me walk with Thee.
I cannot, dare not, walk alone;
The tempest rages in the sky,
A thousand snares beset my feet,
A thousand foes are lurking nigh.
Still Thou the raging of the sea,
O Master! let me walk with Thee.
If I may rest my hand in Thine,
I’ll count the joys of earth but loss,
And firmly, bravely journey on;
I’ll bear the banner of the cross
Till Zion’s glorious gates I see;
Yet, Savior, let me walk with Thee.

014 – Nitembee Nawe
“O Let Me Walk With Thee”
Nitembee nawe mungu Alivyo tembea Henok;
Mkono wangu uushike: Unene nami kwa pole;
Ingawa njia siioni, Yesu nitembee nawe.
Siwezi tembea pekee: pana dhoruba mbinguni;
Mitego ya miguu, elfu; Adui wengi hufichwa;
Uitulize bahari, Yesu nitembee nawe.
Ukinishika mkono Anasa kwangu hasara;
Kwa nguvu nitasafiri; `Tautwika msalaba;
Hata mji wa Sayuni Yesu nitembee nawe.
Working for the Lord
Faithful is the saying, If a man seeketh the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
The bishop therefore must be without reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, orderly, given to hospitality, apt to teach;3no brawler, no striker; but gentle, not contentious, no lover of money;4one that ruleth well his own house, having [his] children in subjection with all gravity;5(but if a man knoweth not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)6not a novice, lest being puffed up he fall into the condemnation of the devil.7Moreover he must have good testimony from them that are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.8Deacons in like manner [must be] grave, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;9holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.10And let these also first be proved; then let them serve as deacons, if they be blameless.
1But speak thou the things which befit the sound doctrine:2that aged men be temperate, grave, sober-minded, sound in faith, in love, in patience:3that aged women likewise be reverent in demeanor, not slanderers nor enslaved to much wine, teachers of that which is good;4that they may train the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,5[to be] sober-minded, chaste, workers at home, kind, being in subjection to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed:6the younger men likewise exhort to be sober-minded:7in all things showing thyself an ensample of good works; in thy doctrine [showing] uncorruptness, gravity,8sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of us.9[Exhort] servants to be in subjection to their own masters, [and] to be well-pleasing [to them] in all things; not gainsaying;10not purloining, but showing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.
