Description

I was struck by this beautiful poem. I think it would make a lovely anthem about the value of living one's best life as we move towards the "end". And, in our current times of the anxious unknown, taking steps on the "right" path is worth encouragement.

Lyrics

Lord, take my hand and lead me upon life's way; direct, protect and feed me from day to day. Without your grace and favor I go astray; so take my hand, O Savior, and lead the way.

Lord, when the shadows lengthen and night has come, I know that you will strengthen my steps toward home, then nothing can impede me, O blessed Friend! So, take my hand and lead me unto the end.
