499. He Leadeth Me

1 He leadeth me, O blessed thought!
O words with heavenly comfort fraught!
Whate'er I do, where'er I be,
still 'tis God's hand that leadeth me.

Refrain:
He leadeth me, he leadeth me,
by his own hand he leadeth me;
his faithful follower I would be,
for by his hand he leadeth me.

2 Lord, I would clasp thy hand in mine,
nor ever murmur nor repine;
content, whate'er my lot may be,
since God through Jordan leadeth me. [Refrain]

3 And when my task on earth is done,
when by thy grace, the victory's won,
e'en death's cold wave I will not flee,
since God through Jordan leadeth me. [Refrain]
