1 Jesus, still lead on till our rest be won.
And, although the way be cheerless,
we will follow, calm and fearless;
guide us by Your hand to our Fatherland.
2 If the way be drear, if the foe be near,
let not faithless fears o'ertake us,
let not faith and hope forsake us;
for, through many a woe, to our home we go.
3 When we seek relief from a long-felt grief--
when oppressed by new temptations,
Lord, increase and perfect patience.
Show us that bright shore where we weep no more.
4 Jesus, still lead on till our rest be won;
Heav'nly Leader, still direct us,
still support, console, protect us,
till we safely stand in our Fatherland.
