1 Lord, who within my inmost heart e’er dwellest,
Be Thou with me!
Thou refuge of my soul in joy and sorrow,
Be Thou with me!

2 Preserve me, when my cup of bliss o’erfloweth,
From arrogance;
And when my burdened heart within me sinketh,
Be Thou with me!

3 As dew upon the vine, Lord, is Thy blessing,
Else am I weak;
That I may boldly venture on the highest,
Be Thou with me!

4 Oh! Thou who art my strength and consolation,
Be Thou with me!
Until my pilgrimage on earth is ended,
Be Thou with me!
