1 Lead us, O Father, in the paths of peace;
without thy guiding hand we go astray,
and doubts appall, and sorrows still increase;
lead us through Christ, the true and living way.
2 Lead us, O Father, in the paths of truth;
unhelped by thee, in error's maze we grope,
while passion stains, and folly dims our youth,
and age comes on, uncheered by faith and hope.
3 Lead us, O Father, in the paths of right;
blindly we stumble when we walk alone,
involved in shadows of a dark'ing night;
only with thee we journey safely on.
4 Lead us, O Father, to thy heav'nly rest,
however rough and steep the path may be,
through joy or sorrows as thou deemest best,
until our lives are perfected in thee.
