Gently, Lord, O gently lead us
Through this lonely vale of tears,
And, O Lord, in mercy give us
Thy rich grace in all our fears.

In the hour of pain and anguish,
In the hour when death draws near,
Suffer not our hearts to languish,
Suffer not our souls to fear.

When this mortal life is ended,
Bid us in thine arms to rest,
Till by angel bands attended,
We awake among the blest.
