'God Leads Us Along' The Gaither Vocal Band Worship Performance

Check out this great worship performance by The Gaither Vocal Band of the song ‘God Leads Us Along.’

“In shady, green pastures, so rich and so sweet, God leads His dear children along
Where the water's cool flow bathes the weary one's feet, God leads His dear children along
Some through the waters, some through the flood, some through the fire, but all through
The blood, some through great sorrow, but God gives a song, in the night season”

This rendition of ‘God Leads Us Along’ was recorded live at Gaither Studios in Alexandria, IN in 2021. In the video, Bill Gaither starts off sharing a memory before the song starts. “My old buddy Al Belittle used to sing this on Wednesday night prayer meetings. I’ll never forget it. Listen,” he says. Then he starts off the song, and the other vocalists join him later on. They all sound incredible together!

The song ‘God Leads Us Along’ is a great reminder that God’s providence is still with us even in our difficult moments. In fact, it was a hard moment that inspired the writing of this hymn.

The hymn’s author was George A. Young, and he was a rural preacher who humbly served the Lord. After saving up enough money and resources for a while, George was able to construct a simple home for his family. Unfortunately, while George Young was away preaching, some bad people who did not like him sharing the Gospel burned down his house and it was completely destroyed. It was out of this tragedy that George Young reaffirmed his faith in God by writing ‘God Leads Us Along’ in 1903.

This hymn has continued to uplift and encourage so many people through the years, and we hope that you enjoyed listening to The Gaither Vocal Band’s rendition of it today!
