He leads us…

He leads us on by the paths we did not know;

Upward He leads us, through our steps be slow,

Through oft we faint and falter on the way,

Through storms and darkness oft obsure the day;

Yet when the clouds are gone,  We know he leads us on.

He leads us on through all the unquiet years;

Past all our dreamland hopes, and doubts and fears,

He guides our steps, through all the tangled maze

Of losses, sorrows, and o’er clouded days,

We know His will is done;

And still He leads us on.
