Guide Me, O Thou Great Redeemer

God's people in His place under His rule.

Guide me, O Thou Great Redeemer 
William Williams (1717-1791)
translated with Peter Williams (1722-1796)
Tune CWM RHONDDA by John Hughes (1873-1932)

Guide me, O thou great Redeemer,
Pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but thou art mighty;
Hold me with thy powerful hand:
Bread of heaven, Bread of heaven,
Feed me now and evermore.

Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the living waters flow;
Let the fiery, cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through:
Strong Deliverer, Strong Deliverer,
Be thou still my strength and shield.

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