Lead Us In Your Truth


Verse 1
Lord you call, and now we come 
To your Holy Word this day. 
Grip our minds and fill our eyes 
With the glory of your ways. 
Reveal your heart, renew our lives 
Through the story of your grace.

Verse 2
Hear the Gospel song resound 
Through the Prophets, Law, and Psalms. 
See the promise bud and flow’r 
Now with royal beauty crowned: 
The Father’s will now stands fulfilled 
In the work of Christ the Son.

Teach us, Keep us,  
Lead us in your truth!  
Lead us in your truth.

Verse 3
Christ has come, and now we call 
On the only one who saves. 
He atones and he alone 
Is the Truth, the Life, the Way. 
No other path, no other plan 
Can restore our fallen race. 

Verse 4
Lowly Savior, gentle friend 
Come and teach us in your way. 
Faithful Shepherd, mighty Lord 
Keep and lead us in the faith. 
Oh, purify and sanctify 
Every step through all our days.

About This Hymn

Psalm 25:4-5 says, "Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths.  Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long."  This is a hymn to prepare our hearts to receive God's word through preaching.  In Christ-centered preaching, God invites us to behold the beauties of His Son in all the pages of Scripture.  All of the Bible is telling the wonders of the person and work of Christ and it is this great story of God's redeeming plan that transforms our lives.  No other path and no other plan can bring us back to life from our dead sinful state.  Jesus, our lowly savior and gentle friend, leads us, keeps us, and teaches us in the faith all of our days.
