Representative Text

1 Though clouds of night may gather,
As on our way we go;
Of one thing we are certain,
Christ leads us here below.

Refrain:
He leads us onward,
Onward, onward;
He knows the way to endless day,
He leads us safely home.

2 The Saviour is our Leader,
The path He takes is right;
Those in His precious keeping
He leads to realms of light. [Refrain]

3 He knows the way before us,
The peril that abounds;
His arm is strong and mighty,
His wondrous love surrounds. [Refrain]

4 The road is sometimes lonely,
No human aid is near;
If we are led by Jesus,
We have no need to fear. [Refrain]

After attending a revival meeting by Reuben Torrey and Charles M. Alexander, Harkness became Alexander’s pianist. He came to Christ shortly thereafter (on a bicycle, he said), and made several round the world tours with Torrey and Alexander. Harkness was especially well known for his program The Music of the Cross, and as the author of correspondence courses in hymn playing. He wrote over 2,000 hymns and Gospel songs in his lifetime.
