  1.  Guide me, O Thou great Eternal,
         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.
