Lead Us Father Gently

Lead Us Father Gently (Foliat House, Piano Ensemble, 3 Verses)

Lead Us Father Gently Lyrics

Lead us, Father, gently lead us
From all empty pride;
Save us, Lord, from sole ambition,
Let us follow Your direction.

Lead us, Father, gently lead us
From a mere foothill
Of our predestined vocation,
According to Your precious will.

Lead us, Father, gently lead us
By Thy light divine;
Protect us from sin’s destruction,
Guide us by Your true reflection.
