587. Jesus, Still Lead On

1 Jesus, still lead on
Till our rest be won;
And although the way be cheerless,
We will follow, calm and fearless;
Guide us by Your hand
To our promised land.

2 If the way be drear,
If the foe be near,
Let no faithless fears o'ertake us,
Let not faith and hope forsake us;
Safely past the foe
To our home we go.

3 When we seek relief
From a long-felt grief,
When temptations come alluring,
Make us patient and enduring;
Show us that bright shore
Where we weep no more.

4 Jesus, still lead on
Till our rest be won;
Heav'nly Leader, still direct us,
Still support, console, protect us.
Till we safely stand
In our promised land.
