Whether The Journey Be Short Or Long


Whether the journey be short or long,
Whether attended with grief or song,
Whether with falt’ring feet or strong,
Father, lead Thou me.

Refrain:
Lead Thou me, Lead Thou me;
Father, Father, lead Thou me.

Where the still waters so sweetly glide,
Or in the surging of sorrow’s tide,
Clinging to Thee, my Friend and Guide,
Father, lead Thou me. [Refrain]

Out of my sorrow and dreary night,
Into Thy gladness and glorious light,
On to the heav’nly mansions bright,
Father, lead Thou me. [Refrain]
