1 Not always in the pastures green,
Where flow'rs and quiet streams are seen,
He leadeth me.
Ah, no! Sometimes his loving hand
Leads where I cannot understand,
Where shadows be.

Where Jesus leads 'tis safe to go,
Tho' storm clouds lower and tempests blow;
I cannot fear, since this I know,
He leadeth me.

2 Not always in the sunshine sweet;
Sometimes where loud the tempests beat,
He leadeth me.
Yet by my side in love he stands,
And cheers my heart and holds my hands
So graciously! [Chorus]

3 What matter if the way be drear?
If Satan tempt my heart to fear?
To him I flee.
I ask not why he leads me so,
For me it is enough to know
He leadeth me. [Chorus]
