Lord Jesus, lead me on

Representative Text

1 Hear my prayer, Lord Jesus, I'm in need of a friend, to guide me.
One who'll keep me, cheer and bless me when hope seems gone, O hear me.
Nothing else will save me till my journey shall end.
Lord Jesus, lead me on.

Blessed Jesus, ever lead me, keep on holding my hand,
Onward till this sin-life with its sorrows are gone;
On be Thou With me as I journey thru this dark sinful land,
Lord Jesus, hold my hand.

2 Storms of life are sweeping o'er my pathway ahead, and they are
Causing me to wonder why I feel so alone, and restless;
Left alone just for one moment fills me with dread,
Lord Jesus, lead me on. [Refrain]

3 No one else can help me, be Thou near me dear Lord, come closer,
Lest old Satan try to temp me when I'm alone, with sorrow.
Help me keep the great commandments taught in Thy word,
Lord Jesus, lead me on. [Refrain]
