Representative Text

1 Thro' the heavy losses, and unyielding crosses,
‘Tis so sweet to know that Jesus leads us on;
Through the pain and sorrow, and the dread tomorrow,
If it is his will, he leads us on.

Jesus leads us on through all the troubled years,
Thro' we faint and falter by the way;
Jesus leads us on thro' doubts and fears
To a clearer, brighter day.

2 Thro' the joy and gladness, through the tears and sadness,
We will follow if he only leads us on;
He will blessings send us, ever will defend us,
If we follow where he leads us on. [Refrain]

3 With our faith to brighten, and his love to lighten,
Every cloud and burden while he leads us on;—
Never cease our singing till we hear the ringing
Of the harps when heaven's morn shall dawn. [Refrain]
