GUIDE me, O Thou great Jehovah,

Pilgrim through this barren land;

I am weak, but Thou art mighty;

Hold me with Thy powerful hand:

Bread of heaven,

Bread of heaven,

Feed me till I want no more,

Feed me till I want no more.


Open now the crystal fountain,

Whence the healing stream shall flow;

Let the fire and cloudy pillar

Lead me all my journey through:

Strong deliverer,

Strong deliverer,

Be Thou still my strength and shield,

Be Thou still my strength and shield.


When I tread the verge of Jordan,

Bid my anxious fears subside;

Death of death, and hell’s destruction,

Land me safe on Canaan’s side:

Songs of praises,

Songs of praises,

I will ever give to Thee,

I will ever give to Thee.
