Representative Text

1 God be with thee, God be with thee,
When the morn is bright and fair;
When thy heart is filled with gladness;
And thou knowest not a care;
God be with thee, God be with thee,
All thy daily joy to share.

2 God be with thee, God be with thee,
When the cloudy day is near,
When thou art by cares surrounded,
And thy path seems long and drear;
God be with thee, God be with thee,
May he keep thy heart from fear.

3 God be with thee, God be with thee,
When amidst the wintry blast,
When the sky is dark and gloomy,
And thy strength is failing fast;
God be with thee, God be with thee,
Keep thy soul in perfect peace.
