Representative Text

1 I have no fear that I shall fall,
No matter what the way may be,
For Jesus hears the faintest call;
The hand of love is leading me.

Refrain:
The hand of love is leading me
And safe I know that I shall be;
He hears each call, I shall not fall;
The hand of love is leading me.

2 The storms of life may beat and sweep,
And but one step my soul may see;
But He who loves me still will keep;
The hand of love is leading me. [Refrain]

3 I know that I shall reach my home
And all the throng rejoicing see,
For He will never let me roam;
The hand of love is leading me. [Refrain]
