Representative Text

1 ‘Tis the Lord who leadeth me still,
‘Tis he who controls and governs my will,
Crowns my life with holy delight,
And giveth me songs in the calm, still night.

Refrain:
O my soul, how favored thou art,
Thus to come so near to his heart;
There by faith I walk in his light,
Who giveth me songs in the calm, still night.

2 ‘Tis the Lord who whispers tome,
I offered myself a ransom for thee;
Say, what mean thy doubtings and fears;
I carry thy sorrows and count thy tears. [Refrain]

3 Safe in him, I will not repine,
Though trials and cares may sometimes be mine;
He, I know, will guide me aright,
Who giveth me songs in the calm, still night. [Refrain]

4 Safe in him, my hope and my all,
Who tenderly hears whenever I call;
Safe in him, my burden is right,
He giveth me songs in the calm, still night. [Refrain]
