276. Guide Us, O Thou Gracious Saviour

8,7.
by W. Williams, 1774
1
Guide us, O Thou gracious Saviour,
 
Pilgrims through this barren land;
 
We are weak, but Thou art mighty;
 
Hold us with Thy powerful hand.
 
Bread of heaven!
 
Feed us now and evermore.
2
While we tread this vale of sorrow,
 
May we in Thy love abide:
 
Keep us ever, gracious Saviour,
 
Cleaving closely to Thy side,
 
Still relying
 
On the Father's changeless love.
3
Saviour, come, we long to see Thee,
 
Long to dwell with Thee above,
 
And to know in full communion
 
All the sweetness of Thy love.
 
Come, Lord Jesus,
 
Take Thy waiting people home.
