1 He dwells with me, my Saviour dear,
Unto His child is ever near;
Whate’er may cross the pathway here,
His precious love ne’er fails to cheer.

He dwells with me, He dwells with me,
My daily comforter is He;
In calm or storm, where’er I be,
O praise His name, He dwells with me.

2 O wondrous thought, He came to dwell,
In my poor heart, and “all is well;”
I’ll sing His love, His goodness tell,
While far and near the anthem swells. [Chorus]

3 What tho’ the gath’ring storm I see,
I’m safe, for Jesus dwells with me;
He e’er my faithful friend will be,
Through life and all eternity. [Chorus]
