Representative Text

1 In perfect trust, I now commit
My way, O Lord, to Thee,
Assured my feet can never fall,
Because Thou leadest me.

Thou wilt lead me now and ever,
Till I reach the blessed river;
‘Tis enough to know, where’er I go,
My Saviour leadeth me. [Refrain]

2 And tho' afflictions, day by day,
My lot on earth may be,
I’ll bear them all with cheerful heart,
Because Thou leadest me. [Refrain]

3 As after storm the sun breaks forth,
More bright and fair to see,
Thus every trial brings its joy,
Because Thou leadest me. [Refrain]
