Representative Text

1 Lead us, Saviour, lead us ever,
With Thy gently guiding hand;
Lead us through the joys and sorrows,
Of an unseen future land.

Lead us, Saviour, lead us ever,
Safely guide our wand’ring feet,
Lead us on to lands of beauty,
Pastures green and meadows sweet.

2 Lead us, Saviour, lead us ever,
Without Thee afar we roam;
Lead us through the storm and darkness,
To the light and peace of home. [Refrain]
