Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah

Melody - Cwm Rhondda by John Hughes (1873-1932)

William Williams (1716-1791)
1. Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah,
Pilgrim, through this barren land;
I am weak, but Thou art mighty,
Hold me with Thy pow'rful hand:
Strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer,
Be Thou still my strength and shield.
2. Open Thou the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing streams do flow;
Let the fiery cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through:
Bread of Heaven, bread of Heaven,
Feed me now and evermore.

3. When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside;
Bear me through the swelling current,
Land me safe on Canaan's side:
Songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to Thee.
