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.

Refrain:
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]
