I am with you, O, how precious is this promise

1 "I am with you," oh, how precious
Is this promise of the Lord;
For it came from lips just silent.
But he's now the "living word."

"I am with you, I am with you,"
Is the blessed promise given:
And I'll trust his gracious presence
All the pilgrimage to heaven.

2 Pilgrim, happy in life's journey,
Singing on the way to heaven,
"Whence thy peace", thy holy rapture?
Why all terror from thee driven? [Refrain]

3 In my life, made sad and weary,
In my anguish, in my pain,
In my hour of desolation,
When the clouds o'er me do hang. [Refrain]

4 If my path be rough and cheerless.
And if faith and hope be small,
And if friends turn foes, and leave me,
On my ears these words will fall,-- [Refrain]

5 When the journey here is ending
This the message he will send,
Lighting up the pass to glory,
Lo, I'm with you to the end. [Refrain]
