1 Angel, hide me close beside thee
When the storms are raging wild;
Keep me near thee, let me hear thee
When thou speakest to thy child.

Doubting never, trusting ever,
Angel, I will follow thee,
‘Till I see death’s lifted curtain,
Let me hide myself in thee.

2 Thro’ the myst’ry of life’s hist’ry
Lead me, dear one, safe above,
Up to the mountain, to the fountain,
Where is everlasting love. [Refrain]

3 When in sorrow, let me borrow
Sunshine from the world of light;
In my sadness, give me gladness,
To o’ercome the darkest night. [Refrain]
