Song writer. Member of the church of Christ. "A Texan who at one time was a well known songwriter among churches of Christ was Newton W. Allphin, who lived from 1875 to 1972. In addition to his religious music work, he produced piano solos in sheet music and band marches. Later in life, he was a tax accountant. Perhaps his best known song is 'You Will Reap What You Sow,' from 1938 with music by Virgil O. Stamps. But he also provided both words and music for a little prayer hymn which has appeared in some of our books."
Blessed Savior, now we pray, Be Thou near us, all the day;
While, before Thy throne we boy, Hear us, Lord, and bless us now.
Gracious Father, hear our prayer--May we, now, Thy blessings share;
Guide us safely all the way To that home of endless day.
May our faith and trust, dear Lord, Ever be in Thy blest word;
Keep us ever near Thy side. Let us in Thy love abide.
Chorus: Savior, Savior, keep us near Thy blessed side;
Savior, Savior, let us in Thy love abide.
