Lead Kindly Light

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 prayed 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 power 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 a while

Meantime, along the narrow rugged path, Thyself hast trod,
Lead,Savior, lead me home in childlike faith, home to my God.
To rest forever after earthy strife
In the calm light of everlasting life.
