Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Lei my Jesus
Vat my hand
Bewaar my Jesus
Met U tere liefde
Hier in my hart
Wyl ek slaap
Vorm my Jesus
Deur U hand
Leer my Jesus
Om die pad te volg
Met U lig in my hart
Na U troon

Behoed my deur die nag
Laat U Gees my steeds bybly
Verkwik my siel met liefde
'n rots van geloof binne my

Lei my Jesus
Vat my hand
Bewaar my Jesus
Met U tere liefde
Hier in my hart
Wyl ek slaap
Vorm my Jesus
Deur U hand
Leer my Jesus
Om die pad te volg




Met U lig in my hart
Na U troon
