586. 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 longfelt grief,
when temptation 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.
