Representative Text

1 There are days so dark that I cannot see
One little step before,
But my Lord will lead, ‘tis enough for me,
Till I come to light once more.

The Lord will lead me on,
Yes, the Lord will lead me on;
Though the way be drear, I will not fear,
He will lead me on.

2 IN the desert ways, where the path is dim,
He’s always by my side;
It is joy to know I can walk with Him;
That my Friend will be my guide. [Refrain]

3 When the daylight dies, and the night-mists fall,
He will not let me stray;
When I seek my rest, at the homeward call,
He will guide me all the way. [Refrain]
