53. Lead Me

1 Guide my footsteps, Father,
Lead me lest I stray;
Let Thy hand unerring
Point out all my way.
When the road is dreary,
And my soul is sad,
When my heart is weary,
Do Thou make me glad.

Refrain:
Be my Rock and Fortress,
Be my Strength and Stay;
Like a tender Shepherd lead me,--
Lead me safely all the way.

2 As I journey onward
To the home above,
All my pathway shelter
With Thy wings of love.
'Neath them my pavilion,
Naught can me alarm,
Shining sun, or shadow,
Neither worketh harm. [Refrain]

3 Guide my footsteps, Father,
Night draws on apace;
Working hours of brightness
To the dark give place.
Guide my footsteps, Father,
What have I to fear?
Thou my joyful portion,
Thou my Guide sincere! [Refrain]
