Exodus 13:21
"And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way;
and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:"


          Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah,
          Pilgrim through this barren land.
          I am weak, but Thou art mighty;
          Hold me with Thy powerful hand.
          Bread of heaven, Bread of heaven,
          Feed me 'til I want no more;
          Feed me 'til I want no more.

          Open now the crystal fountain,
          Whence the healing stream doth flow;
          Let the fire and cloudy pillar
          Lead me all my journey through.
          Strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer,
          Be Thou still my strength and shield;
          Be Thou still my strength and shield.

          When I reach the river Jordan,
          Bid my anxious fears subside;
          Bear me through the swelling current,
          Land me safe on Canaan's side.
          Songs of praises, songs of praises,
          I will ever give to Thee;
          I will ever give to Thee.
