Lead Me Gently Home, Father

Date recorded: November 02, 2012


Words by: Will L. Thompson


Music by: Will L. Thompson

Lead me gently home, Father,
Lead me gently home,
When life’s toils are ended
And parting days have come;
Sin no more shall tempt me,
Ne’er from Thee I’ll roam,
If Thou’lt only lead me, Father,
Lead me gently home.

Chorus

Lead me gently home, Father,
Lead me gently home,
In life’s darkest hours, Father,
When life’s troubles come;
Keep my feet from wand’ring,
Lest from Thee I roam,
Lest I fall upon the wayside,
Lead me gently home.

Chorus

Lead me gently home, Father,
Lead me gently home,
In temptations hour, Father,
When sore trials come;
Be Thou near to keep me,
Take me as Thine own,
For I cannot live without Thee,
Lead me gently home.

Chorus

Lead me gently home, Father,
Lead me gently home, Father;
Lest I fall upon the wayside,
Lead me gently home.
