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. Bread of heaven, Bread of heaven, Feed me till I want no more, Feed me till I want no more.2. Open now the crystal fountain, Whence the healing waters flow; Let the fire and cloudy pillar Lead me all my journey through. Strong Deliv’rer, strong Deliv’rer, Be Thou still my strength and shield, Be Thou still my Strength and Shield.3. When I tread the verge of Jordan, Bid my anxious fears subside; Bear me thru the swelling current, Land me safe on Canaan’s side. Songs of praises, songs of praises, I will ever give to Thee, I will ever give to Thee.
