Full Text

1 Lead me, O my Saviour, lead me,
Closer would I cling to Thee,
Ere the shadows gather round me
And my way I cannot see.

Refrain:
Lead me, lead me,
Grant Thy strength and grace divine;
Let my thoughts on Thee be centered
And my will be lost in Thine.

2 Lead me, O my Saviour, lead me,
Keep my heart from every snare;
Fierce temptations oft assail me
And I need Thy constant care. [Refrain]

3 Lead me, O my Saviour, lead me,
Till at last, my journey o’er,
I shall see, adore and praise Thee
With the ransomed evermore. [Refrain]
