Lead Us, O Lord

Representative Text

1 Lead us, O Lord, nor let us stray
Far from the path of truth away;
Speak with the tender Shepherd's voice,
Speak, and our aching hearts rejoice.

2 Lead us, O Lord, our wand'ring feet
Stray from the path of peace so sweet;
Dim are our eyes, we cannot see;
Take Thou our hands, we'll follow Thee.

3 Lead us, O Lord, for Satan's host
Come to the field with frightful boast;
Thine is the warfare, soldiers we,
Raise Thou the flag, we'll follow Thee.

4 Lead us, O Lord, nor let us roam
Far from the path that guides us home;
As from the mount its walls we see,
Hold Thou our hands, we'll follow Thee.
