1 Beautiful mansions, home of the blest,
Land where the faithful ever shall rest;
There is my treasure, there shall I be;
Lord I am weary, lead me to Thee.

Savior, be near me,
Thy gentle voice can cheer me;
O Jesus, my Savior, lead me to Thee.

2 Here in a desert cheerless I roam.
Laden with sorrow, far from my home.
Clouds on my pathway darkly I see;
Lord I am weary, lead me to Thee. [Refrain]

3 Thou wilt not leave me comfortless here.
Why should I doubt Thee? What do I fear?
Light in the distance breaking I see,
Yet I am weary, lead me to Thee. [Refrain]

4 Jesus, I love Thee, dwell in my heart;
Never, O never from me depart.
Hope like a rainbow, shining, I see,
Yet I am weary, lead me to Thee. [Refrain]
