O God of Bethel, by whose hand Thy people still are fed,
Who through this weary pilgrimage hast all our fathers led:
Through each perplexing path of life, our wandering footsteps guide;
Give us each day our daily bread, our heavenly food provide;
Such blessings from Thy gracious hand our humble prayers implore:
Be Thou, O Lord, our hope, our strength, and portion evermore.
- from a hymn by Philip Doddridge
