Let Jesus Lead

Representative Text

1 So weak thou art and rugged is life's way,
To walk alone it is to fall or stray:
The Shepherd True, He is the guide you need,
Oh, take His hand in faith, let Jesus lead.

Let Jesus lead,
Obey His tender "Come;"
Let Jesus lead,
Let Jesus lead you home.

2 With tender care His sheep are ever fed,
For love of them His precious blood was shed;
He knows thy need, the Christ whose heart hath borne
Each human grief and felt this proud world's scorn. [Chorus]

3 Oh, trust His live, He never will deceive;
Tho' friends forsake thy side He will not leave;
There is no pow'r in earth of heav'n above
Can come between thy soul and His great love. [Chorus]

4 Let Jesus lead, obey His loving call;
He knoweth best, oh, follow Him in all:
In sun and shade keep near thy Lord and Friend,
And heaven's joy shall crown thy journey's end. [Chorus]
