Lead Me Gently Home

I.
Lead me gently home, Father,
Lead me gently home,
When life’s toils are ended,
And parting days have come,
Sin no more shall tempt me,
Ne’er from Thee I’ll roam,
If Thou’lt only lead me, Father,
Lead me gently home.

Lead me gently home, Father
Lead me gently,
Lest I fall upon the wayside,
Lead me gently home.

II.
Lead me gently home, Father,
Lead me gently home,
In life’s darkest hours, Father,
When life’s troubles come,
Keep my feet from wand’ring,
Lest from Thee I roam,
Lest I fall upon the wayside,
Lead me gently home.

Lead me gently home, Father
Lead me gently,
Lest I fall upon the wayside,
Lead me gently home.

III.
Lead me gently home, Father,
Lead me gently home,
In temptation’s hour, Father,
when sore trials come.
Be Thou near to keep me,
Take me as Thine own,
For I cannot live without Thee.

Lead me gently home, Father
Lead me gently,
Lest I fall upon the wayside,
Lead me gently home.
