432. God Leads Us Along

1 In shady, green pastures, so rich and so sweet,
God leads His dear children along;
Where the water’s cool flow bathes the weary one’s feet,
God leads His dear children along.

Chorus:
Some thro' the waters, some through the flood,
Some thro' the fire, but all through the blood;
Some thro' great sorrow, but God gives a song,
In the night season and all the day long.

2 Sometimes on the mount where the sun shines so bright,
God leads His dear children along;
Sometimes in the valley, in darkest of night,
God leads His dear children along. (Chorus)

3 Tho' sorrows befall us and Satan oppose,
God leads His dear children along;
Through grace we can conquer, defeat all our foes,
God leads His dear children along. (Chorus)

4 Away from the mire, and away from the clay,
God leads His dear children along;
Away up in glory, eternity’s day,
God leads His dear children along. (Chorus)
