Always With Us

Representative Text

1."Always with us, always with us:"
Words of cheer and words of love;
Thus the risen Savior whispers,
From His dwelling place above.
With us, when we toil in sadness,
Sowing much and reaping none;
Telling us that in the future
Golden harvests shall be won.

2. With us, when the storm is sweeping
O'er our pathway dark and drear;
Waking hope within our bosoms,
Stilling ev'ry anxious fear:
With us, in the lonely valley,
When we cross the chilling stream;
Lighting up the steps to glory,
With salvation's radiant beam.
