Lyrics

Jesus, Thy strength we need,
Sowing Thy precious seed;
In thought, or word, or deed,
Oh, lead us by the hand.

May we this hour be led
In righteous paths we tread;
And by Thy manna fed,
Oh, lead us by the hand.

As this brief fleeting day
Passes so swift away,
May we from Thee not stray,
Oh, lead us by the hand.

And when the hour draws nigh,
When death shall dim our eye,
Take us to Thee on high,
Oh, lead us by the hand.
