God Leads Us Along

Music, namely worship songs and especially hymns, have a supernatural way of soothing and lifting my soul in the midst of life’s challenging seasons – such as our family, and I personally, have recently experienced.

Below are the lyrics I love of an old hymn by G.A.Young, which, after having shared it on a Facebook page last week, proved a healing balm to several others as well.

May the truth and power in these words touch your life today.


In shady green pastures so rich and so sweet, where the Water’s cool flow bathes the weary one’s feet, God leads us along.

Sometimes on the mount where the sun shines so bright, sometimes in the valley in darkest of night, God leads his children along.


Though sorrows befall us and Satan oppose, through grace we can conquer, defeat all our foes, God leads his children along.

Some thro’ the waters, 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.

God leads His children along!

    1. Thank you Cori. Trust you are all well. I’ve not kept up (meaning = hang out) on social media nor on the blogosphere much, so I feel we’ve lost touch! Blessings.

  1. I totally agree with you!! This particular hymn has meant so much to me during my life. David and I are transitioning from being career missionaries to short term. I will soon be 79 years, so it’s time that we do this. But, it’s still difficult. So, thank you so much for this beautiful reminder that no matter what our stage in life is, God’s leading is so sure, secure, and perfect. God bless you and yours in such a special way!! Love, Doris Godwin
