All The Way My Savior Leads Me

This hymn is one that the Lord has truly used in my life to comfort and strengthen me time and again. Fanny Crosby is definitely one of the best hymn writers that I have ever heard.

Click on the title below for a short bio and a poem memorializing her, as well as a list of the hymns she has on Cyberhymnal.

All The Way My Savior Leads Me
(Lyrics: Fanny Crosby; Music: Robert Lowry)

All the way my Savior leads me;
What have I to ask beside?
Can I doubt His tender mercy,
Who through 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;
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 every trial,
Feeds me with the living Bread.
Though my weary steps may falter,
And my soul athirst may be,
Gushing from the Rock before me,
Lo! A spring of joy I see;
Gushing from the Rock before me,
Lo! A spring of joy I see.

All the way my Savior leads me
O the fullness of His love!
Perfect rest to me is promised
In my Father’s house above.
When my spirit, clothed immortal,
Wings its flight to realms of day
This my song through endless ages—
Jesus led me all the way;
This my song through endless ages—
Jesus led me all the way.
