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. 2Sometimes 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. 3Tho’ 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.
