Gentle Shepard Gently Lead Us

Gentle Shepherd, gently lead us
Guide us through this earthly maze
When in devious paths we wander
Lead us in thy peaceful ways
When the dark clouds round us gather
Shutting out the light of day
Dearest Saviour, guide our footsteps
Lead us gently in the way.

Gentle Shepherd, lead us onward
Thro’ a world of toil and strife
Cheer us with thy glorious presence
On the battle-field of life
Should some vision o’er our pathway
Turn our erring feet astray
Blessed Guardian, be thou near us
Lead us gently in thy way

Gentle Shepherd, lead us ever
In the way that we should go
Turn, O turn our wand’ring footsteps
From the paths that lead to woe.
And when earthly light is fading
Into light of heav’nly ray
Gentle Shepherd, lead us over
To the land of endless day.
