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, bread of heaven, 
	feed me till I want no more; 
	feed me till I want no more.

2.	Open now the crystal fountain, 
	whence the healing stream doth flow; 
	let the fire and cloudy pillar 
	lead me all my journey through.  
	Strong deliverer, strong deliverer, 
	be thou still my strength and shield; 
	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, songs of praises, 
	I will ever give to thee; 
	I will ever give to thee.
