Representative Text

1 Loving Saviour, lead Thou me,
Lest I wander far from Thee,
I am safe when in Thy care,
Thou wilt keep from ev’ry snare.

Refrain:
Lead me, lead me,
Saviour, lead me all the way,
This my constant pray’r shall be,
Saviour, lead me home to Thee.

2 Oh, Thou refuge of my soul,
Hold me in divine control;
Whatsoever may betide,
Lead and keep me by Thy side. [Refrain]

3 Saviour, keep me day by day,
All along my pilgrim way;
When my earthly work is done,
Lead me home, O blessed One. [Refrain]
