E98. Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah

1 Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah,
Pilgrim thro' this barren land:
I am weak but Thou art mighty,
Hold me with Thy powerful hand:
Bread of heaven, Bread of heaven,
Feed me till I want no more!

2 Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing streams do flow:
Let the fiery, cloudy pillar,
Lead me all my journey thro':
Strong Deliv'rer, strong Deliv'rer,
Be Thou still my strength and shield!

3 When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside:
Bear me thro' the swelling current,
Land me safe on Canaan's side:
Songs of praises, songs of praises
I will ever give to Thee.
