1 There is a Guide that never falters,
And when He leads I cannot stray,
For step by step, He goes before me,
And marks my path, He knows the way.

Chorus:
He knows the way that leads to glory;
Thy ev'ry fear He will allay,
And bring thee safe at last to heaven,
Let Jesus lead, He knows the way.

2 Oft-times the path grows dim and dreary,
The darkness hides the cheering ray,
Still I will trust tho’ worn and weary,
My Savior leads, He knows the way. [Chorus]

3 He knows the evils that surround me,
The turnings that would lead astray,
No foes of night can ere confound me,
For Jesus leads, He knows the way. [Chorus]

4 O heart weighed down with nameless anguish,
O guilty soul torn with dismay,
Thine ev'ry foe, His pow'r will vanquish,
Let Jesus lead, He knows the way. [Chorus]
