Step by step, O lov­ing Sav­ior,
In Thine own ap­point­ed way,
In the path which Thou hast chos­en,
Lead us on, from day to day.


Lead us on, O lead us ev­er,
Till we all Thy face shall see:
For our hope is in Thy mer­cy,
We are trust­ing on­ly Thee.

Lead us on, though stor­my bil­lows
Wild and dark be­fore us rise;
Let Thy pre­cious bow of pro­mise
Shine re­splen­dent from the skies.


Lead us on, our souls de­fend­ing,
Till the lat­est storm is past,
And we hear our loved ones sing­ing,
Welcome, wel­come home at last!
