1Jesu, still lead on,
Till our rest be won!
And although the way be cheerless,
We will follow, calm and fearless;
Guide us by Thy hand
To our fatherland.
2If the way be drear,
If the foe be near,
Let not faithless fears o’ertake us,
Let not faith and hope forsake us,
For, through many a foe,
To our home we go.
3When we seek relief
From a long-felt grief,–
When oppressed by new temptations,
Lord, increase and perfect patience;
Show us that bright shore
Where we weep no more!
4Jesu, still lead on,
Till our rest be won!
Heavenly Leader, still direct us,
Still support, console, protect us,
Till we safely stand
In our fatherland. Amen.
