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 has blest me, sure it still
Will lead me on
O'er moon 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 awhile.
