Lead us on, blessed Lord

Representative Text

1. Lead us on, blessed Lord, with the hand of Thy love,
Let Thy mercy our footsteps attend;
Hasten down O sweet Spirit divine from above,
Thy most gracious assistance to lend.

Lead us on, O lead us on,
Till the crown of victory is won;
Lead us on, O lead us on,
Lead us on, Blessed Guide, lead us on.

2. Lead us on, thro' the desert and shadow of doom,
As Thou led'st Thy lov'd Israel of yore;
Let the fire beacon flame 'mid the depths of the gloom,
And the cloud pillar sweep on before. [Chorus]

3. Lead us on till the orient morning shall break
That a setting sun never will know;
Till the ages' pale slumberers joyfully wake,
And spring up from the grasp of the foe. [Chorus]

4. Lead us on till the mansions of beauty descend,
And Thy glory upon us shall dawn;
Grant us courage and grace to endure to the end,
Lead us on, Blessed Guide, lead us on. [Chorus]
