If you know where to get a good pho­to of Tell­er (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


I know the love and grace of Him whose heart
’Midst all my cares and sor­rows bears a part;
Tho’ fears and pass­ions strive to rule my will,
I know that Je­sus loves and leads me still.


He leads me still, He leads me still,
Thro’out the storm and dark­ness of the night;
I walk by faith, for ’tis His will,
And well I know that Je­sus leads me still.

When tri­als come, with doubts a thou­sand strong,
When drea­ry grows the way, and dark, and long,
His whis­pered words thro’ all my be­ing thrill,
For then I know He loves and leads me still.


I love to think of Him while here be­low,
Of how, for me, He suf­fered pain and woe;
My peace and joy He bought on Cal­v’ry’s hill,
And well I know He loves and leads me still.


Some day un­known I’ll see His bless­èd face,
The vic­t’ry mine, thro’ His re­deem­ing grace;
Then, oh, what joy eter­ni­ty to fill
With praise, be­cause He loves and leads me still.
