He leadeth me! O blessed thought

He leadeth me! O blessed thought,
O words with heav’nly comfort fraught;
Whate’er I do, where’er I be,
Still ’tis Christ’s hand that leadeth me.
  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.
Sometimes ’mid scenes of deepest gloom,
Sometimes where Eden’s bowers bloom,
By waters still, o’er troubled sea,
Still ’tis His hand that leadeth me.
Lord, I would clasp Thy hand in mine,
Nor ever murmur or repine;
Content, whatever lot I see,
Since it is Thou that leadest 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 Thou in triumph leadest me.

There are a great many inspiring testimonies about this hymn. I was especially profited by Faith's testimony on 7/25/2018.

Love this song from my childhood... however, since I lost my husband the Lord has led me through all of that grief and further on and I sense His hand leading me.

Our Message this week is Christ, The Star out of Jacob, Numbers 24:17. Reading the outline this song came to me. It reminded me of one of our younger brothers who loves to sing this song at family gatherings in Oklahoma. So enjoy coming to this hymnal site to read all the testimonies. So encouraging, thank you.

It is really while struggling in my walk with Jesus today I saw the movie of Jesus on my Tv and started watching it I heard it said in the movie by the actor portraying Jesus that only who the Father give him can come to him, my heart melted thanking Abba Father for giving me faith to follow Jesus when the tune for this song started in my mind it was a long time since I sang this song so I could not remember any of the words but I kept humming the tune but thank God for the Holy Spirit I started to search Google I said Jesus please give me a few words so could look for it then the Holy Ghost gave me the words He leadeth me. Thank You Jesus for telling me that You still lead me.

One of my favorite of all time. Whenever I feel lost on my spiritual path I get assurance of God's guidance when I sing this song.
