THE PILGRIM'S PRAYER




Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah,
Pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but Thou art mighty;
Hold me with Thy powerful hand:
|: Bread of heaven, :|
|: Feed me now and evermore. :|


Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing stream doth flow;
Let the fiery, cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through:
|: Strong Deliverer, :|
|: Be Thou still my strength and shield. :|


Feed me with the heavenly manna
In this barren wilderness
Be my sword and shield, and banner
Be my robe of righteousness
|: Fight and conquer; :|
|: All my foes by sovereign grace :|


Lord, I trust Thy mighty power,
Wondrous are Thy works of old;
Thou deliverest Thine from thralldom,
Who for naught themselves had sold:
|: Thou didst conquer, :|
|: Sin, and Satan and the grave. :|


When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside;
Death of death, and hellís destruction,
Land me safe on Canaanís side:
|: Songs of praises :|
|: I will ever give to Thee. :|


Musing on my habitation,
Musing on my heavenly home,
Fills my soul with holy longings:
Come, my Jesus, quickly come;
|: Vanity is all I see; :|
|: Lord, I long to be with Thee! :|


While we tread this vale of sorrow,
May we in Thy love abide;
Keep us, O our gracious Saviour!
Cleaving closely to Thy side:
|: Still relying :|
|: On our Fatherís changeless love. :|


Saviour, come! We long to see Thee,
Long to dwell with Thee above;
And to know, in full communion,
All the sweetness of Thy love:
|: Come, Lord Jesus! :|
|: Take Thy waiting people home. :|


---Alternative verses---


Guide me, O Thou great Redeemer
Pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but Thou art mighty;
Hold me with Thy powerful hand:
|: Bread of heaven,
:|
|: Feed me now and evermore. :|


Guide us, O Thou great Jehovah
Pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but Thou art mighty;
Hold me with Thy powerful hand:
|: Bread of heaven, :|
|: Feed me now and evermore. :|


Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah,
Pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but Thou art mighty;
Hold me with Thy powerful hand:
|: Bread of heaven, :|
|: Feed me till I want no more. :|


Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing streams do flow;
Let the fiery, cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through:
|: Strong Deliverer, :|
|: Be Thou still my strength and shield. :|


When I pass through death's dark shadow
Bid my anxious fears subside
Death of deaths, and hell's destruction
Lead me safe on heaven's side
|: Songs of praises, :|
|: I will ever give to thee. :|
