“Lead Thou Me On,” New Era, Feb. 2006, 45
My favorite hymn is “Lead, Kindly Light” (Hymns, no. 97). I love the way this hymn sounds. One Sunday, when I was 14, I was playing the piano. I turned to this hymn and began to play and sing. It was then that I felt a great feeling of hope and peace. I later found out that this hymn was one of my grandfather’s favorites. So now when I play this song I feel my grandpa with me even though he is gone. My favorite line is, “The night is dark, and I am far from home; Lead thou me on!” That line just makes me glad for the opportunity to pray.
