Published in 20 hymnals

Representative Text

1 God is near thee, therefore cheer thee,
Sad soul!
He'll defend thee when around thee
Billows roll,
When around thee billows roll.

2 Calm thy sadness, look in gladness
On high!
Faint and weary, pilgrim, cheer thee,
Help is nigh!
Pilgrim, cheer thee, help is nigh!

3 Mark the sea-bird wildly wheeling
Through the skies!
God defends him, God attends him
When he cries!
God attends him when he cries.

4 God is near thee, therefore cheer thee,
Sad soul!
He'll defend thee, when around thee
Billows roll!
When around the billows roll.
