Lead Us, O Father, in the Paths of Peace
Four 10's


James Langran, 1862

William Henry Burleigh, 1868

Lead us, O Father, in the paths of peace;

Without thy guiding hand we go astray,

And doubts appall, and sorrows still increase;

Lead us through Christ, the true and living Way.

Lead us, O Father, in the paths of truth;

Unhelped by thee, in error's maze we grope,

While passion stains, and folly dims our youth,

And age comes on, uncheered by faith and hope.

Lead us, O Father, in the paths of right;

Blindly we stumble when we walk alone,

Involved in shadows of a darksome night,

Only with thee we journey safely on.

Lead us, O Father, to thy heavenly rest,

However rough and steep the path may be,

Through joy or sorrows as thou deemest best,

Until our lives are perfected in thee.
