This has been my favorite hymn for as long as I can remember. It always lifts my spirit to remember that He leads me, no matter where I am. It goes right along with one of my favorite scriptures: For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord (Jeremiah 29:11).
He has plans.
I just need to follow.
He Leadeth Me
words: Joseph H. Gilmore (1862)
music: William Bradbury (1864)
1 He leadeth me: O blessed thought!
O words with heavenly comfort fraught!
Whate’er I do, where’er I be,
still ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me.
He leadeth me, he leadeth me;
by his own hand he leadeth me:
his faithful follower I would be,
for by his hand he leadeth me.
2 Sometimes mid scenes of deepest gloom,
sometimes where Eden’s flowers bloom,
by waters calm, o’er troubled sea,
still ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me. Refrain
3 Lord, I would clasp thy hand in mine,
nor ever murmur nor repine;
content, whatever lot I see,
since ’tis my God that leadeth me. Refrain
4 And when my task on earth is done,
when, by thy grace, the victory’s won,
e’en death’s cold wave I will not flee,
since God through Jordan leadeth me. Refrain
