Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah

William Williams, 1717-1791; trans. from the Welsh by Peter Williams and the author Music: John Hughes, 1873-1932

Guide me, O thou great Jehovah, > pilgrim through this barren land. > I am weak, but thou art mighty; > hold me with thy powerful hand. > Bread of heaven, bread of heaven, > feed me till I want no more; > feed me till I want no more.

Open now the crystal fountain, > whence the healing stream doth flow; > let the fire and cloudy pillar > lead me all my journey through. > Strong deliverer, strong deliverer, > be thou still my strength and shield; > be thou still 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 give to thee; > I will ever give to thee.
