1Lead us, O Father, in the paths of peace;
Without Thy guiding hand we go astray,
And doubts appall, and sorrows still increase;
Lead us through Christ, the true and living Way.
2Lead us, O Father, in the paths of truth;
Unhelped by Thee, in error’s maze we grope,
While passion stains, and folly dims our youth,
And age comes on, uncheered by faith and hope.
3Lead us, O Father, in the paths of right;
Blindly we stumble when we walk alone,
Involved in shadows of a darksome night,
Only with Thee we journey safely on.
4Lead us, O Father, to Thy heavenly rest,
However rough and steep the path may be,
Through joy or sorrow as Thou deemest best,
Until our lives are perfected in Thee. Amen.
