His Hand Is Guiding Me

As I travel on my way, To that land more fair than day

Author: Ulysses Phillips
Tune: [As I travel on my way]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 As I travel on my way,
To that land more fair than day,
There are beauties all along the road to see;
Heaven’s rays are shining bright,
I’ve no need for worldly light,
For I know my Savior’s hand is guiding me.

Refrain:
Oh, I know my Savior’s hand is guiding me,
Oh, I know my Savior’s hand is guiding me,
From this world of sin and woe,
To a land where pleasures flow;
Yes, I know my Savior’s hand is guiding me.

2 If as on the way I go,
Things arise I do not know,
I will wait upon the Lord that leadeth me—
He will hold me by the hand
Till I reach that happy land,
Yes, I know my Savior’s hand is guiding me. [Refrain]

3 When in sickness, trial, or test,
I am called to do my best,
I will trust the Lord the more for victory;
I will lean upon His arm,
He will keep me from all harm,
For I know my Savior’s hand is guiding me. [Refrain]

4 When I near the chilling tide,
Looking on the other side,
And my mortal bark shall sink in death’s cold sea,
Jesus then will light the way
To that land more fair than day,
For I know my Savior’s hand is guiding me. [Refrain]
