Lead me, Father, lead, I pray,
For the night is dark and wild,
And I cannot see my way;
Father, lead Thy trembling child.
Lead me, Father, lead me, Father,
For the night is dark and wild;
Lead me, Father, lead, O lead me,
Lead Thy trembling child.
Lead me when the morning dawns,
Lest in paths of sin I stray,
Lest earth’s pleasures lure my soul,
Lead me in the narrow way.
Lead me in the noonday clear,
When night’s shadows all are gone,
Lest I leave Thy tender care,
Lest I dare to walk alone.
When the evening draweth on,
And my courage ebbs away,
Lead me then till comes the dawn
Of the everlasting day.
