Ever Lead Me (SATB)

Ever Lead Me is an arrangement by Lane Johnson of the hymn, Lord, Accept Our True Devotion, written by Norman W. Smith (1833-1917), with new words by Michelle Smyth. In the last few months of her mother's serious illness, Michelle was grieving the impending death of her mother and in need of comfort. This hymn tune, which she had heard performed in the past, came to her mind and she sat down and penned new words to the melody. It is a gentle, pleading prayer, entreating the Lord to be with us as we go through the various challenges of our lives. 

This arrangement is designed to be beautiful and simple, and very accessible to singer, accompanist, and listener.

Also available for for Vocal Solo and Vocal Duet!

Text

As I leave thy sure, safe harbor
As I go along thy way,
As the storms of life surround me,
As the darkness clouds the day

Ever lead me, ever guard me,
Let me know you're always there.
Ever lead me, ever guard me.
Let me know I'm in your care.

To thy strength I lay my burdens,
To thy voice I give my will.
To thy sight I trust my journey,
To thy hands, my needs fulfill.

Ever lead me, ever guard me.
Let me know you're always there.
Ever lead me, ever guard me.
Let me know I'm in your care.

Take me through the darkest hour.
Take me past the deep despair.
Take me on to deeper waters.
Take me 'round the tempter's snare.

Ever lead me, ever guard me.
'Til my journey's finally through.
Ever lead me, ever guard me,
'Til, my Lord, I live with you. 

Ever lead me, ever guard me.
Let me know you're always there.
Ever lead me, ever guard me.
Let me know I'm in your care.
