8143. Lead Me Safely On

1 Lead me safely on by the narrow way,
From the shores of time to the realms of day;
By the cross of Christ may I ever stand,
As I journey on to the better land.

Lead me on, lead me on,
By the straight and narrow way,
Lead me on, lead me on,
To the realms of endless day.

2 With a shepherd’s care thro’ the night and day,
Keep me close to Thee lest I go astray;
Lead me safely on by Thy tender love,
Thro’ this world of sin to my home above. [Refrain]

3 Thro’ the storms of life, ’mid the ocean’s foam,
Lead me safely on to my heav’nly home;
At the fount of life on the other shore,
Let me freely drink till I thirst no more. [Refrain]
