1 Gently lead me, O my Savior,
Thro’ the wilderness of life;
Grant that all the light and shadows,
All the joy and all the strife,
Each may bring me closer to Thee;
Nearer to Thy loving side;
May I trust Thee fully, wholly,
Saying, Lord, with Thee abide.

May I trust Thee fully, wholly,
Lead me to my heav’nly home.

2 O the depth of mortal anguish!
O the sorrow and the woe!
Nothing but a gloomy future
Yawns before me as I go;
On the lonely, weary journey
Of my life from day to day;
Yet, dear Lord, Thou’lt not forsake me;
Wilt Thou, Savior, lead the way? [Refrain]

4 Help and strengthen me, dear Savior,
For I cannot go alone;
All the weary, gloomy distance
Is entirely unknown;
Not a ray of light to brighten
Up the lonely, dreary way,
And sometimes my faith grows dimmer,
Till I feel I cannot pray. [Refrain]

5 Tho’ the sea of life is stormy,
Thou controlest by Thy will;
Thou canst whisper words of comfort;
Thou canst now say, "Peace, be still;"
All the roaring, angry billows,
Every overwhelming tide,
Thou canst check my dear, dear Savior:
I will walk close by Thy side. [Refrain]
