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 Thy hand
To our fatherland.
2 If the way be drear,
If the foe be near,
Let not faithless fears o'ertake us,
Let not faith and hope forsake us;
For, through many a woe,
To our home we go.
3 When we seek relief
From a long-felt grief,
When oppressed by new temptations,
Lord, increase and perfect patience;
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 fatherland.
