Representative Text

1 By day or night, in joy or pain,
Lord, keep us close to Thee;
Temptations try our souls in vain,
When Thy dear face we see.

Walking with Jesus by the way,
Walking with Jesus all the day!
Ever our grateful hearts shall say,
“Lord, with us abide!”

2 When burdened with a load of care,
With weary hearts and sore,
Can we but know Thy presence near,
We feel our load no more! [Refrain]

3 O never, never can we stray
With Thy dear hand to guide!
No pow’r can draw our souls away,
While walking at Thy side. [Refrain]
