He Leadeth Me

He leadeth me beside still waters, He restoreth my soul. Psalm 23:1-3

~~~

He Leadeth Me
words by Joseph H. Gilmore

He leadeth me, O bless├Ęd thought!
O words with heav’nly comfort fraught!
Whate’er I do, where’er I be
Still ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me.

Sometimes mid scenes of deepest gloom,
Sometimes where Eden’s bowers bloom,
By waters still, over troubled sea,
Still ’tis His hand that leadeth me.

Lord, I would place my hand in Thine,
Nor ever murmur nor repine;
Content, whatever lot I see,
Since ’tis my God that leadeth me.

And when my task on earth is done,
When by Thy grace the vict’ry’s won,
E’en death’s cold wave I will not flee,
Since God through Jordan leadeth me.

Refrain:
He leadeth me, He leadeth me,

By His own hand He leadeth me;
His faithful follower I would be,
For by His hand He leadeth me.

I love this hymn. I have memories of you singing "He Leadeth Me" in your high, sweet, little girl voice. ♥
(Moms remember these things.)
