Representative Text

1 And art Thou with us, gracious Lord,
To dissipate our fear?
Dost Thou proclaim Thyself our God,
Our God for ever near?

2 Doth Thy right hand, which formed the earth,
And bears up all the skies,
Stretch from on high its friendly aid,
When dangers round us rise?

3 And wilt Thou lead our weary souls
To that delightful scene,
Where rivers of salvation flow
Through pastures ever green?

4 On Thy support our souls shall lean,
And banish every care;
The gloomy vale of death shall smile,
If God be with us there.

Amen.

Notes

And art thou with us, gracious Lord? P. Doddridge. [In trouble.] Not in the "Doddridge manuscript" and first published in J. Orton's edition of his Hymns, &c., 1755, No. 98, in 5 stanzas of 4 lines, with the heading, “The timorous Saint encouraged by the Assurance of the Divine Presence and Help. Is. xli. 10." The same text was repeated in J. D. Humphreys's edition of Doddridge's Hymns, 1839. Its use is limited, and in Spurgeon's 0ur Own Hymn Book, stanza ii. is omitted. In a few collections, including Lant Carpenter's Unitarian Hymn Book, Bristol, 1831, and others, a cento is given as, “Art thou still with us, gracious Lord?" It is composed of stanzas i., ii., and iv., slightly altered. -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
