234. Savior, Lead Me Lest I Stray

1 Savior, lead me lest I stray,
Gently lead me all the way;
I am safe when by Thy side,
I would in Thy love abide.

Lead me, lead me, Savior,
lead me, lest I stray;
Gently down the stream of time,
Lead me, Savior, all the way.

2 Thou the refuge of my soul,
When life's stormy billows roll;
I am safe when by Thy side,
All my hopes on Thee rely. [Refrain]

3 Savior, lead me, then at last,
When the storm of life is past;
To the land of endless day,
Where all tears are wiped away. [Refrain]
