Guide me, O thou great Je-ho-vah,
Pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak but thou art mighty,
Hold me with thy powerful hand;
Bread of hea-ven,
Bread of hea-ven,
Feed me till I want no more,
Feed me till I want no more.

Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing streams do flow;
Let the fiery, cloudy pillar
Lead us all our journey through:  
Strong Deliverer,
Be thou still our strength and shield.

When we tread the verge of Jordan
Bid our anxious fears subside:
Bear us through the swelling current,
Land us safe on Canaan's side:
Songs of praises
We will ever give to thee.
