Refrain:
Lead me, Lead me, my Lord;
Lead me.
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.
O, Lead me, Lead me, my Lord;
Lead me.
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.

1 The man who loves to serve the Lord.
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I--
Will surely get his just reward,
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I. O, [Refrain]

2 As I go down the stream of time,
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I--
I leave this sinful world behind,
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I. O, [Refrain]

3 Ole Satan's mad and I am glad,
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I--
He missed that soul he thought he had,
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I. O, [Refrain]
