'Tis not as led by custom's voice

'Tis not as led by custom's voice

Author: Norman
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 ’Tis not as led by custom’s voice,
We make these ways our favoured choice,
And thus with zeal pursue;
No; Zion’s great and gracious Lord
Has, in the precepts of his word,
Enjoined us thus to do.

2 Thou everlasting, gracious King,
Assist us now thy grace to sing,
And still direct our way
To those bright realms of peace and rest,
Where all the exulting tribes are blessed
With one great choral day.
