Representative Text

1 Lead me to Jesus, lead me to Jesus,
Help me to love Him, help me to pray;
He is my Saviour, I would believe Him;
I would be like Him—show me the way.

Quickly haste, and come where happy children meet,
Hither come and rest thy little weary feet;
Turn from thy pleasures, turn from thy play,
Come to our Sunday School away.

2 Lead me to Jesus, He will protect me,
He is so loving, gentle, and mild;
Calling the children, bidding them welcome;
Surely He calls me—I am a child. [Refrain]

3 Tell me of Jesus, tell of His mercy;
Is there a fountain flowing so free?
All who are willing drink of its waters;
Say, is that fountain flowing for me? [Refrain]

4 Lord, I am coming! Jesus, my Saviour,
Pity my weakness, make me Thy child;
I would receive Thee, trust and believe Thee,
I would be like Thee, gentle and mild. [Refrain]
