Hymn of the Week: 'Lead Me, Lord'

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 01/27/18

Sit back and drink in the beautiful, soulful harmonizing of the Choir of Sommerville College in Oxford. Our choir will be singing this for the offertory this weekend.

It was written in the 19th century by Samuel Sebastian Wesley, son of composer Samuel Wesley and grandson of hymn writer Charles Wesley.

The words:

Lead me, Lord,

Lead me in Your righteousness;

Make Your way plain before my face.

Lead me, Lord,

Lead me in Your righteousness;

Make Your way plain before my face.

Lead me, Lord.
