330 (8.7.8.7) Thomas Hastings

Gently, Lord, O gently lead us

Through this gloomy vale of tears;

And, O Lord, in mercy give us

Thy rich grace in all our fears.

Chorus:

O refresh us,

Trav'ling through this wilderness.

When temptation's darts assail us,

When in devious paths we stray,

Let thy goodness never fail us,

Lead us in Thy perfect way.

In the hour of pain and anguish,

In the hour when death draws near,

Suffer not our hearts to languish,

Suffer not our souls to fear.

When this mortal life is ended,

Bid us in Thine arms to rest,

'Til, by angel bands attended,

We awake among the blest.
