LEAD US, HEAVENLY FATHER, LEAD US
O’er the world’s tempestuous sea
Guard us, guide us, keep us, feed us
For we have no help but Thee
Yet possessing every blessing
If our God our Father be

Savior, breathe forgiveness o’er us
All our weakness Thou dost know
Thou didst tread this earth before us
Thou didst feel its keenest woe
Tempted, taunted, yet undaunted
Through the desert Thou didst go

Spirit of our God, descending
Fill our hearts with heavenly joy
Love with every passion blending
Pleasure that can never cloy
Thus provided, pardoned, guided
Nothing can our peace destroy

Words: James Edmeston (1791 - 1867) alt.
Music: Adapted from F. Filitz's Choralbuch (1847)
