A Hymn: Lead Me, and Guide Me


Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days


Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

Simply Trusting Everyday

The Composed Song

1. Hearken Thou even ‘to me

And rescue me even right now

Thou art the One that I trust

Oh Thou God of salvation


Thou art my Rock and fortress

Therefore for your own name sake

Please continue to lead me

And be Thou also my guide

2. Darkness hath covered earth up

It’s empty and without form

But Thou art even the Light

That darkness can’t comprehend


3. Even in this world of sin

That evil act be multiplied

And that every heart be evil

Only thou canst deliver me


4. In the midst false brothers

In the midst of false sisters

Those who art ‘magine evil

Only thou canst deliver me


5. Therefore who can even save

One from wicked mother’ son

That slandereth his own sibling

If not thou my only Rock


6. In the midst of the hypocrites

And those who are the traitors

Those who surround my abode

Only thou canst deliver me


7. Oh! Save me lord Oh! Save me

Hand me not over to ‘nemy

I have even run unto thee

Save me Jesus oh my Lord

Cheryl E Preston thanks ma. Music has over the ages been used for healing. I know you will aptly bring to mind the sickness of King Saul, he was repeatedly healed by the music (instruments) of the Young David (1 Samuel 16).

And over the years it has been recommended by medics, especially the psychologists and psychiatrist.

The ancient fathers of Yoruba land had also encouraged music so well, that is why you will see in Nigeria, most of the musicians are from Yoruba land, because those people know the importance of Music and it has over the years been passed across to us.

It will not therefore surprise you that when Christianity also came into Yoruba land (South West of Nigeria) Music has been the major integral part of our worshiping God and His Jesus.

I also love music, it helps us connect to the Spiritual realm...as it happened during Prophet Elisha's day when he was confronted by three Kings seeking for way our of their logjam (2 King 3).

Thank you ma. I appreciate you comment.
