Words: Helen A. Dickinson, 1916

Along the varied paths of life,
Through hours of joy and sorrow keen,
In grim temptation’s mortal strife,
In doubt or confidence serene,
Lord, lead us still, O lead us still.

Through all the changes of the years,
Whate’er of good or ill betide,
In laughter gay or bitter tears,
O keep us ever at thy side;
Lord, lead us still, O lead us still.

And when at last the tale is told,
The vict’ry won by thy good grace,
May we thy glory, Lord, behold,
In that blest homeland see thy face;
Lord, lead us still, O lead us still.
