Certainly I Will Be With Thee

Representative Text

1 “Certainly I will be with thee!”
Father, I have found it true;
To Thy faithfulness and mercy
I would set my seal anew.

2 All the years Thy grace hath kept me,
Thou my help indeed hath been,
marvelous Thy loving kindness
Ev’ry day and hour hath seen.

3 “Certainly I will be with thee!”
Let me feet it, Savior dear;
Let me know that Thou art with me,
Very precious, very near.

4 “Certainly I will be with thee!”
Blessed Spirit, come to me,
Rest upon me, dwell within me,
Let my heart Thy temple be.
