#169: Holy Spirit, Faithful Guide

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Holy Spirit, faithful Guide, Ever near the Christian’s side;

Gently lead us by the hand, Pilgrim in a dessert land;

Weary souls fore’er rejoice, While they hear that sweetest voice

Whisp’ring softly, “Wand’rer come”Follow Me, I’ll guide thee home.”

2

Ever present, truest Friend, Ever near Thine aid to lend,

Leave us not to doubt and fear, Groping on in darkness drear;

When the storms are raging sore, Hearts grow faint, and hopees give o’er,

Whisper softly, “Wand’rer come”Follow Me, I’ll guide thee home.”

3

When our days of toil shall cease, Waiting still for sweet release,

Nothing left but heav’n and prayer, Knowing that our names are there,

Wading deep the dismal flood, Pleading naught by Jesus’ blood,

Whisper softly, “Wand’rer come”Follow Me, I’ll guide thee home.”
