1 Dear Spirit, lead me to the Saviour's side,
Where my poor soul I may in safety hide
From wrath divine, now hanging over me,
And shall until by faith the Lord I see.

Chorus:
Dear Spirit, lead me to his side,
Where my poor soul I may in safety hide;
I place my hand in thine;
O take this soul of mine,
Lead on till I behold my Lord, Crucified.

2 For thy sure guidance I've not always sought,
Pride spurred me on to think as others tho't,
That I alone could surely find the way
From nature's night to realms of endless day. [Chorus]

3 But now I place my trembling hand in thine,
And take thy counsel, Lord, instead of mine;
Thou know'st the way, thou art a trusted guide,
And to my soul can show the Crucified. [Chorus]

4 Sweet Spirit, lead me kindly on I pray,
Out of the maze of error's broad'ning way;
For it is death to linger there, or stay--
With night so near, encircling life's short day. [Chorus]

5 I know thou wilt, unworthy tho' I be,
Safe lead me on, my risen Lord to see,
My loved ones, too, who long have gone before,
To join their ranks, at home, to part no more. [Chorus]
