Lead Kindly Light : Wells Cathedral Choir

The choir of Wells Cathedral sing the beautiful hymn Lead Kindly Light with words by John Henry Newman.

Lead, kindly Light, amid th'encircling gloom,
lead thou me on!
The night is dark, and I am far from home;
lead thou me on!
Keep thou my feet; I do not ask to see
the distant scene; one step enough for me.

I was not ever thus, nor prayed that thou
shouldst lead me on;
I loved to choose
