Representative Text

1 There is a hand, unseen by me,
That leads through ways I cannot see;
While going through this world of woe,
This hand still leads me as I go.

I’m trusting in the unseen hand
That guides me through this weary land;
And some sweet day I’ll reach that strand,
Still guided by the unseen hand.

2 His hand has led through shadows drear,
And while it leads, I have no fear;
I know ’twill lead me to that home
Where sin and sorrow ne’er can come. [Refrain]

3 I long to see my Savior’s face
And sing the story "Saved by Grace,"
And there upon that golden strand,
I’ll praise Him for His guiding hand. [Refrain]
