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.

This song reminds me the role of a shepherd where Jesus says in John 10 that He walks ahead of His sheep. I desire to be led by Him.

A short while ago I was searching for the hymn " I am Thine O Lord" but could not locate in the hymnal as the index is missing, God led me to it.

That's why I am singing this song. It’s a powerful testimony that God will lead us and instruct in the way we should go. The devil wanted to obstruct but God said ,"No way" Thank You Jesus for coming to my rescue. Amen.


This song which I used to sing many years ago came to mind and was such a blessing. At 84 it is so good to still know the leading of a faithful Shepherd.
