Representative Text

1 Along the pathway of the years,
Amid earth’s sorrow and its tears,
There is a tho’t that always cheers;
God’s guiding hand shall lead me on.

Refrain:
God’s guiding hand shall lead me on,
Until the mists of life are gone,
Into the light of endless day
His guiding hand shall lead the way.

2 O’er sunlit hills or valleys drear,
O’er meadows green or desert sear,
My heart shall know no anxious fear
His guiding hand shall lead me on. [Refrain]

3 When I can sing a gladsome song,
Or when my heart weeps all day long,
I find a consolation strong,
God’s guiding hand shall lead me on. [Refrain]

4 Then rest my heart in this glad tho’t:
The best for thee, thy Lord hath sought,
What comes to thee thy God hath bro’t,
His guiding hand shall lead me on. [Refrain]
