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.

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]
