Father Lead Me For I Need Thee

Father, lead me, for I need Thee
Ev’ry step of life’s long way;
Thou alone art e’er unchanging,
Give Thy presence day by day.

Father, lead me now and ever,
For I know Thy way is best,
Fold me closer, fold me closer,
Let me find in Thee sweet rest.

From all sin and fear of falling
Fully free my soul would be;
And with humble, child-like trusting,
I would follow only Thee. [Refrain]

Father, lead me until evening,
When shall set life’s fleeting sun,
And I bring my sheaves all golden,
Then to hear Thee say, “Well done.” [Refrain]
