He Leadeth Me

Verse 1:
He leadeth me! oh! blessed thought,
Oh! words with heav’nly comfort fraught;
Whate’er I do, where’er I be,
Still ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me.

Refrain:
He leadeth me! He leadeth me!
By His own hand, He leadeth me;
His faithful follower I would be,
For by His hand He leadeth me.

Verse 2:
Sometimes ‘mid scenes of deepest gloom,
Sometimes where Eden’s bowers bloom,
by waters still, o’er troubled sea,–
Still ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me.

Verse 3:
Lord, I would clasp Thy hand in mine,
Nor ever murmur nor repine–
Content, whatever lot I see,
Since ’tis my God that leadeth me.

Verse 4:
And when my task on earth is done,
When, by Thy grace, the victory’s won,
E’en death’s cold wave I will not flee,
Since God through Jordan leadeth me.

Jos.H. Gilmore/Wm.B. Bradbury
