126. When Jesus Leads

1 When Jesus leads, the way grows bright,
E'en tho' before 'twas darkest night;
From him there beams a radiance fair,
A heav'nly light, a light beyond compare.

I'll trust him though I cannot see
The path thro' which he leadeth me;
My faith in him shall be my stay;
I am content when Jesus leads the way.

2 Tho' dark the path my feet shall tread,
And dark the clouds be overhead,
I'll have no fear, for at my side
There walks the Son, my falt'ring steps to guide. [Chorus]

3 I'll follow him while life shall last,
I'll follow him till I have passed
The golden gates of that fair shore
Where I shall rest with him forevermore. [Chorus]
