Edmeston wrote about 2,000 hymns, and this is perhaps the most familiar of his compositions. It as at once an excellent wedding hymn, as well as being used on other occasions. "Lead Us Heavenly Father Lead Us" is one of two well known Anglican hymns included on this Ceremony & Celebration album, the other being "The King Of Love My Shepherd Is."

lyrics

LEAD US HEAVENLY FATHER LEAD US LYRICS:

Lead us, heavenly Father, lead us
o'er the world's tempestuous sea;
guard us, guide us, keep us, feed us,
for we have no help but thee;
yet possessing every blessing,
if our God our Father be.

Savior, breathe forgiveness o'er us;
all our weakness thou dost know;
thou didst tread this earth before us;
thou didst feel its keenest woe;
yet unfearing, persevering,
to thy passion thou didst go.

Spirit of our God, descending,
fill our hearts with heavenly joy;
love with every passion blending
pleasure that can never cloy;
thus provided, pardoned, guided,
nothing can our peace destroy.
