-- Job 35:10
Lead Us, Heavenly Father, Lead Us
Lead us, Heavenly Father, lead us,
Over the world’s 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 over us,
All our weakness Thou dost know;
Thou didst tread this earth before us,
Thou didst feel its keenest woe;
Lone and dreary, faint and weary,
Through the desert thou didst go.
Spirit of our God descended;
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,
By James Edmeston -- 1791-1867
Father to Thy holy keeping
Humbly we ourselves resign;
Saviour who has kept our sleeping,
Make our workdays real as thine.
Blessed Spirit, living in us,
Chase the darkness of our night.
Till the perfect Day before us,
Breaks in everlasting Light.
By Henry Edward Bickersteth -- 1825-1906
Have a Blessed Day in the Lord!
