Hymn/Song Information

Lead us heavenly Father lead us o'er the




Lead us, heavenly Father, lead us
Oer the worlds tempestuous sea;
Guard us, guide us, keep us, feed us,
For we have no help but Thee;
Yet possessing every blessing
If our God our Father be.


Saviour, breathe forgiveness oer us;
All our weakness Thou dost know,
Thou didst tread this earth before us,
Thou didst feel its keenest woe;
Tempted, taunted, yet undaunted,
Through the desert Thou didst go.


Spirit of our God, descending,
Fill our hearts with heavenly joy,
Love with every passion blending,
Pleasure that can never cloy;
Thus provided, pardoned, guided,
Nothing can our peace destroy.


---Alternative verses---


Saviour, breathe
forgiveness oer us;
All our weakness Thou dost know,
Thou didst tread this earth before us,
Thou didst feel its keenest woe;
[yet unfearing, persevering,
to thy passion thou didst go.
