Precious Savior, dear Redeemer, Thy sweet message now impart. May thy Spirit, pure and fervid, Enter every timid heart; Carry there the swift conviction, Turning back the sinful tide. Precious Savior, dear Redeemer, May each soul in thee abide.
Precious Savior, dear Redeemer, We are weak but thou art strong; In thy infinite compassion, Stay the tide of sin and wrong. Keep thy loving arms around us; Keep us in the narrow way. Precious Savior, dear Redeemer, Let us never from thee stray.
Precious Savior, dear Redeemer, Thou wilt bind the broken heart. Let not sorrow overwhelm us; Dry the bitter tears that start. Curb the winds and calm the billows; Bit the angry tempest cease. Precious Savior, dear Redeemer, Grant us everlasting peace.
Lead, kindly Light amid the' encircling gloom; Lead thou me on! The night is dark, and I am far from home, Lead thou me on! Keep thou my feet; I do not ask to see The distant scene--one step enough for me.
I was not ever thus, nor pray'd that thou Shouldst lead me on. I loved to choose and see my path; but now, Lead thou me on! I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears, Pride ruled my will. Remember not past years.
So long thy pow'r hath blest me, sure it still Will lead me on O'er moor and fen o'er crag and torrent, till The night is gone. And with the morn those angel faces smile, Which I have loved long since, and lost awhile!
"There seems to be no end to the Savior's desire to lead us to safety, and there is constancy in the way He shows us the path. He calls by more than one means so that it will reach those willing to accept it." ---President Henry B. Eyring
