1 I am still with Thee,
Where’er I stray;
I am still with Thee,
By night and day;
On the morning’s wings
Tho’ I repair
To the farthest bound,
The Lord is there!

Refrain:
In that home above,
Oh, let me be
Forevermore,
Dear Lord, with Thee.

2 I am still with Thee,
In bliss or woe;
I am still with Thee,
I joyous know;
On Thy arm of might
My soul shall lean,
When the storm is loud,
Or sky serene! [Refrain]

3 I am still with Thee,
Tho’ far I rove;
I am still with Thee,
And feel Thy love;
In each trying hour
Be Thou my friend,
And my journey thro’
My steps attend. [Refrain]

4 I am still with Thee,
Tho’ from my sight
Thou art hidden still
By day and night;
When the vale of death
My feet shall near,
May Thy presence quell
My every fear. [Refrain]
