1 Lead me, Savior, gently lead, I pray,
Lead me all along my pilgrim way;
Firmly hold me by Thy loving hand,
Till I reach the promised, happy land.

Savior, lead me, gently lead me;
In Thy pleasant pastures feed me;
Lead me, lead me ev’ry day,
Kindly lead me all the way.

2 Wilt Thou thro’ life’s journey be my Guide?
Close beside me, blessed Lord abide;
Gently whisper in my list’ning ear,
Words of love my fainting heart to cheer. [Refrain]

3 Lead me, for the way I do not know;
Lead me, for alone I cannot go;
Lead me,—Savior, Guide and Shepherd be,
Lead, and I will gladly follow Thee. [Refrain]
