1 Lead Thou me on, and then my feet tho' weary,
Shall never falter in life's rugged way;
And tho' my pathway lead thro' wilds most dreary,
Guided by thee my feet shall never stray.
2 Fill me with love, and then my life shall ever
Show forth the light of Thy sweet love divine;
And tho' this world my heart from Thee would sever,
I still rejoice in knowing Thou art mine.
3 Give me Thy grace, the grace that more aboundeth
When all the hosts of sin upon me roll;
And tho' life's care my lonely way surroundeth,
Still I can rest, if Thou my life control.
4 Give me Thy peace that passeth understanding,
And wraps the soul in calm and sweet repose;
And tho' the storms would keep my soul from landing,
At length I'll anchor, safe from all my foes.
5 Lord, well I know, all these, and more are given,
With Christ in whom all heav'nly riches dwell;
In Him by faith I grasp the joys of heaven,
And taste the bliss my tongue now fails to tell.
