Representative Text

1 He leadeth me, for I can feel the clasping
Of that piercèd hand so firm, so kind, so dear;
And in sweet, trusting confidence I follow,
And fear no danger while my guide is near.

Refrain:
He leadeth me, He leadeth me,
No danger then my soul shall fear,
But in sweet, trusting confidence I follow,
And fear no danger while my guide is near.

2 He leadeth me, but not thro’ flow’ry meadows,
Where sunshine lingers all the gladsome day;
My tirèd feet are often torn and bleeding,
With thorns that pierce them in this narrow way. [Refrain]

3 He leadeth me, but sometimes in my blindness,
I turn aside to grasp at earthly toys;
Ah, then His voice so tenderly doth win me,
That like a shadow, fly all other joys. [Refrain]

4 He leadeth me, and I will clasp more closely
That piercèd hand so kind, so firm, so dear;
And in sweet, trusting confidence I follow,
And fear no danger while my guide is near. [Refrain]
