A Prayer For You Today

November 13, 2023
There are moments in our lives when we do not know what to do. We need guidance. When William Williams wrote Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah, he had such moments in mind.
The poem, which would later become a hymn, expresses the power of our loving God to guide and provide for all our human needs.
A prayer for you today.
Guide me, O my great Redeemer,
pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but you are mighty;
hold me with your powerful hand.
Bread of heaven, bread of heaven,
feed me now and evermore,
feed me now and evermore.
Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing stream doth flow;
Let the fire and cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through.
Strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer,
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield;
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield
When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside;
Death of death and hell’s Destruction,
Land me safe on Canaan’s side.
Songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to Thee;
I will ever give to Thee.
Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah
William Williams (1717-1791)
God be with you and help you.
