’Tis God’s own hand that leadeth me,
Along my lonely way;
But not because He needeth me,
I need Him for my stay.

Refrain

So God’s own hand doth lead me on,
Thro’ darkness and thro’ gloom,
And well I know, where’er I go,
His hand will lead me home.
Home, sweet home,
My dear, my heavenly home;
And well I know, where’er I go,
His hand will lead me home.

’Tis God’s own hand that leadeth me,
Along my toilsome way;
And since in love He feedeth me,
I’ll trust Him day by day.

Refrain

’Tis God’s own hand that leadeth me,
Along my pilgrim way;
And every day He speedeth me
Towards Heav’n’s eternal day.
