All along life's rugged journey

Representative Text

1 All along life's rugged journey
I am trusting thee,
O my Saviour, blessed Saviour;
Thou wilt keep me safe from falling,
lead me tenderly,
Jesus dear, my loving Saviour.

Refrain;
I am trusting, I am trusting,
Thou wilt keep me day by day:
I am trusting, I am trusting,
Thou wilt keep me all the way.

2 If my feet grow tired and weary,
and the way be long,
O my Saviour, blessed Saviour;
Thou wilt give me joy and comfort,
and wilt make me strong,
Jesus dear, my loving Saviour. [Refrain]

3 If the woes of life come o'er me,
in that hour be near,
O my Saviour, blessed Saviour;
Give me faith unto the victory,
till my soul with cheer,
Jesus dear, my loving Saviour. [Refrain]

4 I am trusting, working, waiting
as the end draws nigh.
O my Saviour, blessed Saviour;
And by faith I see the glories
of the home on high,
Jesus dear, my loving Saviour. [Refrain]
