                              THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah,
        Pilgrim through this barren land.
        I am weak but Thou art mighty;
        Hold me with Thy powerful hand.
        Bread of heaven,
        Feed me till I want no more.

        2. Open now the crystal fountain
        Whence the healing stream doth flow;
        Let the fiery, cloudy pillar
        Lead me all my journey through.
        Strong Deliverer
        Be Thou still my Strength and Shield.

        3. When I tread the verge of Jordan,
        Bid my anxious fears subside;
        Death of death and hell's Destruction,
        Land me safe on Canaan's side.
        Songs of praises
        I will ever give to Thee.
