276: GUIDE us, O Thou gracious Saviourby William Williams (1717-1791)
1 GUIDE us, O Thou gracious Saviour,
Pilgrims through this barren land;
We are weak, but Thou art mighty;
Hold us with Thy powerful hand;
Bread of heaven,
Feed us now and evermore.
2 While we tread this vale of sorrow,
May we in Thy love abide:
Keep us ever, gracious Saviour,
Cleaving closely to Thy side,
On the Father's changeless love.
3 Saviour, come, we long to see Thee,
Long to dwell with Thee above,
And to know in full communion
All the sweetness of Thy love;
Come, Lord Jesus,
Take Thy waiting people home.
