Representative Text

1 I am resting, sweetly resting, O my Savior,
On the promise of the mercy day by day,
To the city built above, in the shadow of thy love,
Thou wilt lead me all the way.

Chorus:
O the burden of my song
While the moments glide along
Thou wilt lead me home, nevermore to roam,
Precious Savior, thou wilt lead me all the way.

2 I am trusting, fully trusting, O my Savior,
And my faith is growing brighter while I pray,
For the gentle voice I hear, and it whispers soft and clear,
Thou wilt lead me all the way. [Chorus]

3 I will praise thee for thy goodness, O my Savior,
Thou hast ever been my refuge and my stay,
Tho’ the stormy waves may roll, what a comfort to my soul,
Thou wilt lead me all the way. [Chorus]

4 Thro’ the pearly gates of Eden, O my Savior,
Where the tender buds and blossoms ne’er decay,
I shall enter safe at last, when my journey here is past,
Thou wilt lead me all the way. [Chorus]
