“And all the night with light of fire"
 - Ps.78:14

1.  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, l do not ask to see

     The distant scene, one step enough for me.

2.  I was not ever thus, nor pray'd that Thou 

     Shouldn’t lead me on
     I love to choose and see my path but now 

     Lead thou me on

     I love the Parish day, and spite of fears, 

     Pride ruled my will, remember not

     past years.

3.  So long Thy power hath bless'd me sure it still 

     Will lead me on 

     O'er moor and fen, o'er crag and torrent, still 

     The night is gone.

     And with the morn those angels' faces smile 

     Which I have loved long since and 

     lost a while.

4.  And until then, as on this pilgrimage 

     That Thou has trod

     Lead Thou me on,

     Jesus blessed Saviour

     To Father's home.  Amen
