Representative Text

1 God knows the path my feet must tread;
He knows what storms may low’r o’erhead;
And in the darkness leads the way,
Lest I soul stray,
Lest I soul stray.

2 He knows the tempter’s artful snare,
Laid to entrap me unaware;
And in the darkness doth He call,
Lest I should fall,
Lest I should fall.

3 He knows the loneliness I fee,
As deep’ning shadows o’er me steal;
And in the darkness draweth near,
Lest I should fear,
Lest I should fear.

4 He knows the long night of the grace,
He knows how dread Death’s chilling wave;
And in the darkness will be there,
Lest I despair,
Lest I despair.
