God Leads Us Along
Words and Music by G.A. Young

John 10:3
"To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice:
and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out."

          In shady, green pastures, so rich and so sweet,
          God leads His dear children along;
          Where the water's cool flow bathes the weary one's feet,
          God leads His dear children along.

            Chorus
            Some through the waters, some through the flood,
            Some through the fire, but all through the blood;
            Some through great sorrow, but God gives a song,
            In the night season and all the day long.

          Sometimes on the mount where the sun shines so bright,
          God leads His dear children along;
          Sometimes in the valley, in darkest of night,
          God leads His dear children along.

            Chorus
            Some through the waters, some through the flood,
            Some through the fire, but all through the blood;
            Some through great sorrow, but God gives a song,
            In the night season and all the day long.

          Tho' sorrows befall us and Satan oppose,
          God leads His dear children along;
          Through grace we can conquer, defeat all our foes,
          God leads His dear children along.

            Chorus
            Some through the waters, some through the flood,
            Some through the fire, but all through the blood;
            Some through great sorrow, but God gives a song,
            In the night season and all the day long.

          Away from the mire, and away from the clay,
          God leads His dear children along;
          Away up in glory, eternity's day,
          God leads His dear children along.

            Chorus
            Some through the waters, some through the flood,
            Some through the fire, but all through the blood;
            Some through great sorrow, but God gives a song,
            In the night season and all the day long.
