Lead Kindly Light

by FiddleSticks




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 don not ask to see
The distant scene one step enough for me

I was not ever thus of prayed that thou
Should lead me on I love 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 power hath blessed me sure it still
Will lead me on over moor and fen 
Over crag and torrent ‘till the night is gone 
And with the morn those angle faces smile
Which I have loved long since and lost a while
