HYMN 561

H.C. 363 8s 7s (FE 588)
“My presence shall go with thee 
and I will give thee rests" - Exd.33:14

1.  LEAD us, heav’nly Father, lead us 

     O’er the world’s tempestuous sea 

     Guard us, guide us, keep us, feed us 

     For we have no help but Thee

     Yet possessing every blessing 

     If our God our Father be.

2.  Saviour, breathe forgiveness o'er us 

     All our weakness Thou dost know 

     Thou didst tread this earth before us 

     Thou didst feel its keenest woe 

     Lone and dreary, faint and weary 

     Through the desert Thou didst go.

3.  Spirit of our God, descending

     Fill our hearts with heavenly joy

     Love with every passion blending 

     Pleasure that can never cloy

     This provided, pardon’d guided, 

     Nothing can our peace destroy.  Amen
