Great Redeemer

Guide me, O thou Great Redeemer
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 now and evermore.

Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing stream doth flow:
Let the fiery, cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through:
Strong deliverer,
Strong deliverer,
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield.

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 and praises
Songs and praises
I will ever give to Thee.

William Williams (1717 – 1791)
