Lead Me Gentle Savior

Lead Me Gentle Savior
In the paths of righteousness,
 Lead me gentle Savior
Away from all worldliness,
Let me cast my gaze,
Toward the eternal days.
Lead me gentle Savior,
In the way saints have trod,
Lead me gentle Savior,
Ever closer to my God,
Each day a little nearer still,
 My heavenly home, Thy precious will.
Lead me gentle Savior,
Through the storm that rages near,
Lead me gentle Savior,
With thy hand I need not fear,
Tho the waves would swallow me,
 Like Peter, I will cling to Thee.
Help me gentle Savior,
To bring other souls to Thee,
 Help them gentle Savior,
That thy glory they may see,
Then Thy holy grace may flow,
As nourishment to help them grow.
Teach me gentle Savior,
To thirst for nothing but Thy love,
Lead me gentle Savior,
To Thy mansions up above,
There to ever live with Thee,
My gentle Savior, then I'll see.

Katherine Elizabeth Graft-
my mother-
as a prayer for her children,
and grandchildren.
Now shared with all of 
her great-grandchildren.
