1. Lead, kindly Light, a-mid th' encircling gloom, Lead Thou me on: The night is

dark, and I am far from home; Lead Thou me on!

Keep Thou my feet; I

do not ask to see

The dis-tant scene; one step enough for me.


2 I was not ever thus, nor prayed that Thou
Shouldst lead me on;

I loved to choose and see my path; but now
Lead Thou me on!

I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears,
Pride ruled my will. Remember not past years.

3 So long Thy power hath blessed me, sure it still
Will lead me on

O'er moor and fen, o'er crag and torrent, till
The night is gone,

And with the morn those angel faces smile

Which I have loved long since, and lost awhile.

John H. Newman.


2 Shall we, whose souls are lighted

With wisdom from on high,

Shall we, to men benighted,
The lamp of life deny?
Salvation! O salvation!

The joyful sound proclaim,
Till earth's remotest nation

Has learned Messiah's name.

3 Waft, waft, ye winds, His story,
And you, ye waters, roll,
Till, like a sea of glory,

It spreads from pole to pole;
Till o'er our ransomed nature
The Lamb for sinners slain,
Redeemer, King, Creator,
In bliss returns to reign!

Reginald Heber.

284 Jewett. 6s. D.


1. My Jesus, as Thou wilt! O may Thy will be mine! In to Thy hand of love
