Lead me Lord along this earthly path of mine
through those meadows where the sun does shine,
beside the serene and peaceful waters.
Lead me Lord through those green pastures
Lead me Lord through the darkest time
when life is hard and the sun refuses to shine.
Take my hand and keep me close to You.
Lead me onward, lead me through.
Lead me Lord through the valley of deaths shadow
to those gates of splendour where there is no sorrow
Lead me Lord into the realms of heavenly grandeur
when I come to the end of my earthly adventure.
Lead me my dear Shepherd, lead me through,
and help me to walk so close to You.

each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting a glorious
aspect of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
