Representative Text

1. I know Thy hand upholdeth me,
My Savior and my God;
And step by step I’ll follow Thee
Where’er Thy feet have trod.

I know in whom I have believed,
And, knowing, I am blest;
Thou art the anchor of my soul—
In Thee my hope shall rest.

2. I know Thy hand upholdeth me,
When doubt and danger near
Would tempt me from the narrow way,
Or fill my heart with fear. [Refrain]

3. I know Thy hand upholdeth me,
And will in safety keep
My trusting heart, though I may pass
Through waters dark and deep. [Refrain]

4. I know Thy hand upholdeth me,
And will my soul defend;
Sufficient is Thy grace, O Lord,
To keep me to the end. [Refrain]
