All The Way My Savior Leads Me



I was not familiar with the hymn, but saw this lovely video.




All the way my Savior leads me; What have I to ask beside?
Can I doubt His tender mercy, Who thru life has been my guide?
Heav'nly peace, divinest comfort, Here by faith in Him to dwell!
For I know whate'er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well.

All the way my Savior leads me; Cheers each winding path I tread,
Gives me grace for ev'ry trial, Feeds me with the living bread:
Tho my weary steps may falter, And my soul athirst may be,
Gushing from the Rock before me, Lo! a spring of joy I see.

All the way my Savior leads me; Oh, the fullness of His love!
Perfect rest to me is promised In my Father's house above;
When my spirit, cloth'd immortal, Wings its flight to realms of day,
This my song thru endless ages: Jesus led me all the way.

Text: Fanny Crosby
Music: Robert Lowry

How absolutely incredibly beautiful, Cathy. This is the type of music I love best of all and I've always loved this hymn. Where would we be without the Savior leading us?

Hi Cathy -
This is one of my favorite hymns. I've thought of telling my family to have it sung when God takes me to Glory. Not morbid - just has such a message. That's how much it means to me.

and I pray that for us that "All the way our savior leads us...what have we to ask beside"...how precious...I cannot place this song yet the title and different lines sound so familiar...but I could not sing along(I guess without the music...I must be loosing it)(lol).

Lovely piece! Thank you! Enjoy a blessed & grateful celebration with loved ones for Thanksgiving!

Hi Cathy!!

I'm a little behind in visiting people!! I wanted to thank you for stopping by and visiting me!!

I love your song--I love piano, and the words just speak to my heart.

I love music and God often speaks to me through song, and this song in particular speaks to me this morning!!

I stopped by your other site for a little--I'm going to go back when I come home from work so that I can see and hear what you've written.
