He Leadeth Me
Words by Joseph H. Gilmore
Music by William B. Bradbury

Psalm 23:3
"He restoreth my soul:  he leadeth me in
the paths of righteousness for his name's sake."

divider

          He leadeth me, O blessed tho't!
          O words with heav'nly comfort fraught!
          Whate'er I do, where'er I be,
          Still 'tis God's hand that leadeth me.

            Chorus
            He leadeth me, He leadeth me!
            By His own hand He leadeth me!
            His faithful foll'wer I would be,
            For by His hand He leadeth me.

          Sometimes mid scenes of deepest gloom,
          Sometimes where Eden's bowers bloom,
          By waters still, o'er troubled sea,
          Still 'tis His hand that leadeth me!

            Chorus
            He leadeth me, He leadeth me!
            By His own hand He leadeth me!
            His faithful foll'wer I would be,
            For by His hand He leadeth me.

          Lord, I wold clasp Thy hand in mine,
          Nor ever murmur nor repine,
          Content whatever lot I see,
          Since 'tis my God that leadeth me!

            Chorus
            He leadeth me, He leadeth me!
            By His own hand He leadeth me!
            His faithful foll'wer I would be,
            For by His hand He leadeth me.

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

            Chorus
            He leadeth me, He leadeth me!
            By His own hand He leadeth me!
            His faithful foll'wer I would be,
            For by His hand He leadeth me.
