1 Ever near my Savior’s side
Would I linger night and day;
He alone shall be my guide
Thro’ life’s rough and thorny way.

Ever near, ever near,
Dearest Savior, ever near,
Thou art now the Living Way,
Near Thee ever let me stay.

2 Tho’ the night be dark and drear,
And no ray of light I see,
I’ll press on if He is near
To uphold and comfort me. [Refrain]

3 When the cheerful light of day
Raises hope and makes me strong,
Still I would beside Him stay,
Lift to Him my thankful song. [Refrain]

4 Shades of death I will not fear,
Jesus lights the darkest way;
And I know He will be near
Till I reach the perfect day. [Refrain]
