This beautiful song, over a century old, still proclaims such truth! The melody is soothing, and I enjoyed hearing our song leader sing this as the special music last night!

When God is leading… then I am following. The comfort that a child has knowing that the parent will do them no harm is the same comfort I can have when truly following God’s leading me along!

I found a beautifully sung version on youtube to share…

 God Leads Us Along

1   In shady, green pastures, so rich and so sweet.
   God leads His dear children along;
   Where the water’s cool flow bathes the weary one’s feet,
   God leads His dear children along.
2   Sometimes on the mount where the sun shines so bright,
   God leads His dear children along;
   Sometimes in the valley, in darkest of night,
   God leads His dear children along.
3   Tho’ sorrows befall us, and Satan oppose,
   God leads His dear children along;
   Through grace we can conquer, defeat all our foes,
   God leads His dear children along.
4    Away from the mire, and away from the clay,
   God leads His dear children along;
   Away up in glory, eternity’s day,
   God leads His dear children along.
Chorus 
   Some thro’ the water, some thro’ the flood,
   Some thro’ the fire, but all thro’ the blood;
   Some thro’ great sorrow, but God gives a song,
   In the night season and all the day long.
