Representative Text

1 Along life’s pathway lead Thou me,
My stay and comfort ever be,
While on my weary pilgrim way,
Dear Savior, lead me day by day.

O lead me when the way is dark,
And tempest tossed is my frail bark;
And when I cross cold Jordan’s stream,
Upon Thine arms O let me lean.

2 When waves of sorrow o’er me roll,
And doubts and fears oppress my soul,
O let me still Thy footsteps see,
And hear Thy voice still calling me. [Refrain]

3 When from Thee, Lord, my feet would stray,
And wander from Thy fold away,
O draw me by Thy love and grace,
To seek again my Savior’s face. [Refrain]

4 And when life’s conflict shall be o’er,
Its griefs and cares oppress no more,
Across death’s dark and stormy sea,
O blessèd Savior, lead Thou me. [Refrain]
