Lead me, O Lord.@Psalm 5:8

Nellie B. Sweets, in Grateful Praise, by William J. Kirkpatrick & Henry L. Gilmour (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Hall-Mack, 1902), number 81.

Mrs. Fannie L. Simpson (🔊 pdf nwc).

Lead me, Father, lead, I pray,
For the night is dark and wild,
And I cannot see my way;
Father, lead Thy trembling child.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

When the evening draweth on,
And my courage ebbs away,
Lead me then till comes the dawn
Of the everlasting day.

Refrain
