    Verse 1
    Heavenly Father, gently lead us,
    Lead us through this vale of tears,
    Thy grace bestow Thou upon us,
    To make light our burdens here.

    Chorus
    Comfort us, Lord,
    Through this earthly wilderness.

    Verse 2
    When troubles shoot arrows at us
    All around us and about,
    Do not let Thy goodness fail us,
    Lead us in Thy perfect way,

    Chorus
    Comfort us, Lord,
    Through this earthly wilderness.

    Verse 3
    When deep pain rakes through our body
    When death's angel is so near,
    Forbid that we become weary,
    Grant that our hearts will not fear.

    Chorus
    Comfort us, Lord,
    Through this earthly wilderness.

    Verse 4
    When our fleeting life is over
    Let us lean upon Thy wings,
    Till the angels come to take us,
    To that blessed, happy land.

    Chorus
    Comfort us, Lord,
    Through this earthly wilderness.
