1 Jesus, keeps us day by day,
Hears us when we pray;
Gently leads us by His hand,
Safe to glory-land.

Lord we praise Thee for Thy love,
Guide us to our home above,
Where we’ll ever praises sing,
To our heavn’ly king.

2 Jesus , lead us by Thy hand,
To that happy land;
Where we’ll never know a care,
In those mansions fair. [Refrain]

3 May we lean upon Thy arm,
Free from every harm;
Walking safely in the light,
To our home so bright. [Refrain]
