I Lean Upon No Broken Reed

I lean upon no broken reed,
Nor trust an untried guide;
I know Him and He knoweth me,
He walketh by my side.

I hold His hand as on we walk,
And still He holdeth mine;
It is a human hand I hold,
Also a hand Divine

"Hold Thou me up" is still my cry,
As o'er the rugged road
Of this my pilgrimage I move,
That leads me nearer God.

Lord Jesus, Thou the first and last,
Oh, when willt Thou appear?
And bring the long, long looked for dawn
Of the eternal year.

~Horatius Bonar

I found this song 2 years ago during a difficult time in my life, and ever since I have loved it a LOT! He is there with us, and will guide us in the way that is best for us.
