Representative Text

1 Lead me to Jesus, my soul is so weary,
Weary of bearing the yoke of sin;
Dark clouds above me, my pathway is dreary,
Joy never dwells my sad heart within.

Refrain:
Lead me to Jesus, lead me today;
Lead me to Jesus, lead me, I pray;
Tenderly, carefully,
Lovingly, prayerfully,
Lead me to Jesus.

2 Mountains impassable, sins rise around me,
Hiding the light of the Father’s face;
Sitting in darkness, sin fetters have bound me,
Vainly I struggle without his grace. [Refrain]

3 Lead me to Jesus, my soul now returning,
Seeks in its bosom its resting place;
Lead me to Jesus, my heart now is burning,
Longing for mercy, and love, and grace. [Refrain]
