Guide me, O my great Redeemer,
pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but you are mighty,
hold me with your powerful hand:
Bread of Heaven, bread of Heaven,
Feed me now and evermore.

Open now the crystal fountain
where the healing waters flow;
let the fiery, cloudy pillar
lead me all my journey through:
Strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer,
ever be 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 sing to you.

Care and doubting, gloom and sorrow,
fear and shame are mine no more;
faith knows not of dark tomorrow,
for my Saviour goes before;
songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to you.
