1 Take my hand and lead me, Father,
Thro’ life’s stormy pilgrimage;
Let Thy light shine brighter, Father,
On its dark, mysterious page.
For I find my feet oft straying
From the path of truth and right;
Feel the need of Thy protection,
And Thy light to shine more bright.

Refrain:
Take my hand, take my hand,
For I cannot see the way;
Take my hand, take my hand,
For I cannot see the way.
Guide me, guide me
There to live through endless day;
Guide me, guide me
There to live through endless day.

2 For the road is rough and stony,
And I cannot see the way;
Yet, if Thou will deign to guide me,
With Thine own resplendent ray,
I can never, never stumble,
But shall walk close by Thy side.
With a love so pure and trusting,
That no sin can e’er divide. [Refrain]

3 Hold my hand in Thine, O Father,
Till I reach the pearly gates;
There I’ll leave my cross and burden,
For my star-gemmed crown awaits.
Then I’ll sing in strains of rapture,
In the light of perfect day;
Thou didst deign to guide me, Father,
And hast led me all the way. [Refrain]
