Lead Kindly Light
By John B. Dykes,
arr. David Strickler
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 thou power hath blest me, sure it still will lead me on,
O’er moon and fen and crag and torrent ’till the night is gone.
And with the morn those faces smile which I have loved long since, and lost a while.
