1.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,
Bread of heaven, Feed me till I want no more.
2.Open now the crystal fountain, Whence the healing waters flow;
Let the fiery, cloudy pillar Lead me all my journey through :
Strong Deliverer, Be thou still my strength and shield,
Strong Deliverer, Be thou still my strength and shield,
3.When I tread the verge of Jordan, Bid my anxious fears subside;
Bear me through the swelling current; Land me safe on Canaan's side:
Songs of praises I will ever give to thee.
Songs of praises I will ever give to the.Amen
