Worship Songs — Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer | 1 Divine Song

Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Psalm 100:2

Difference Between Praise and Worship Songs

Christian praise and worship songs or Christian devotional songs are an integral part of church services worldwide. The distinction between “Praise Songs” and “Worship Songs” is usually governed by the tempo— praise songs usually being more up-tempo while worship songs are slower and focused more earnestly on the loving relationship between the worshipers and God. One of the greatest devotional songs “Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer” was written by Welsh priest William Williams Pantycelyn.

Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer Lyrics

Guide me, O Thou great Redeemer,
Pilgrim through this barren land,
I am weak, but Thou art mighty,
Hold me with Thy powerful hand,
Bread of heaven, bread of heaven,
Feed me now and evermore,
Feed me now and evermore.

Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing stream doth flow,
Let the fire and cloudy pillar,
Lead me all my journey through,
Strong deliverer, strong deliverer,
Be Thou still my strength and shield,
Be Thou still my strength and shield.

When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside,
Death of death, and hell’s destruction,
Land me safe on Canaan’s side,
Songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to Thee,
I will ever give to thee.
