Lead Me Safely On, #7

Lyrics

Verse 1
Lead me safely on by the narrow way,
From the shores of time to the realms of day;
By the cross of Christ may I ever stand,
As I journey on to the better land.

Chorus
Lead me on, lead me on,
By the strait and narrow way,
Lead me on, lead me on,
To the realms of endless day.

Verse 2
With a Shepherd’s care thro’ the night and day,
Keep me close to thee, lest I go astray;
Lead me safely on by thy tender love,
Thro’ this world of sin to my home above.

Verse 3
Thro’ the storms of life, ’mid the ocean’s foam,
Lead me safely on to my heav’nly home;
At the fount of life on the other shore,
Let me freely drink till I thirst no more.
