Saviour through the desert lead us




Saviour, through
the desert lead us!
Without Thee we cannot go;
Thou from cruel chains hast freed us,
Thou has laid the tyrant low;
|:Let Thy presence :|
Cheer us all our journey through.


What a price Thy love
has bought us;
Saviour, what a love is Thine!
Hitherto Thy power has brought us,
Power and love in Thee combine:
|: Lord of Glory, :|
Ever in Thy household shine!


Through a desert,
waste and cheerless,
Though our destined journey lie,
Rendered by Thy presence fearless,
We may every foe defy:
|: Nought shall move us :|
While we see Thee, Saviour, nigh.


When we halt, no track discovering,
Fearful lest we go astray,
Oer our path Thy pillar hovering,
Fire by night, and cloud by day.
|: Shall direct us, :|
That we may not miss our way.


When we hunger
Thou wilt feed us;
Manna shall our camp surround;
Faint and thirsty, Thou wilt heed us,
Streams shall from the rock abound:
|: Happy people! :|
What a Saviour we have found!


---Alternative verses---


With a price Thy love has bought us,
(Saviour, what a love is Thine!)
Hitherto Thy power has brought us,
(Power and love in Thee combine):
|: Lord of glory, :|
Ever on Thy loved ones shine!
