241: SAVIOUR, through the desert lead usby Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)
1 SAVIOUR, through the desert lead us,
Without Thee we cannot go;
Thou from cruel chains hast freed us,
And hast laid the tyrant low:
Let Thy presence
Cheer us all our journey through.
2 Through a desert waste and cheerless,
Though our destined journey lie,
Rendered by Thy presence fearless,
We may every foe defy:
Nought shall move us,
While we see Thee, Saviour, nigh.
3 With a price Thy love has bought us,
(Saviour, what a love is Thine!)
Hitherto Thy power has brought us,
(Power and love in Thee combine):
Lord of glory,
Ever on Thy loved ones shine!
