Representative Text

1 He leads me on thro’ deserts drear,
And over mountains wild;
Where’er He leads me I’ll not fear,
For I am still His child.

He leads me on, He leads me on,
With Him my way is sure;
His heav’nly love enfoldeth me,
And keeps my heart secure.

2 He leads me where the torrents roar,
And thro’ the stormy sea,
I hear Him calling from the shore,
“Fear not, but follow me.” [Refrain]

3 He leads me ‘neath the starry sky,
And thro’ the noontide heat,
I know He guides me with His eye,
And stays my falt’ring feet. [Refrain]

4 He leads me on my pilgrim way,
By watchful care I’m bound,
There is no place along my way
But that my God is found. [Refrain]
