Representative Text

1 The Lord hath said that He will guide
And ever walk close by our side;
But better still for falt’ring feet,
This promise comes so clear and sweet.

Refrain:
The Lord will go before you,
The Lord will go before you,
The Lord will go before you,
His promises are sure.

2 We need not shrink nor fearful be,
Tho’ all the way we cannot see,
For just ahead, where’er we are,
There shines this blessed guiding Star. [Refrain]

3 So step by step, come weal or woe,
We’re safe because He loves us so;
And in our weary waiting time
The promise rings with sweetest chime. [Refrain]

4 ‘Tis ours to follow, brave and true,
Until the river’s brink we view,
And then with rapture we’ll behold
This promise-bridge of heaven’s gold. [Refrain]
