He Leadeth Me is an acoustic instrumental compilation of time honored hymns and songs of faith played in gentle, worshipful arrangements featuring hammered dulcimer and guitar.
Our goal in this CD was to produce a gentle, instrumental album that you could either sing along with, meditating on the words of these great hymns and songs of faith, or just relax and listen. Either way, we hope you will be blessed and refreshed.
