1 If the Saviour journey with me,
If he be my constant stay,
If his presence guide and keep me,
Thro’ the dark as thro’ the day;
I will fear no harm, dread no fierce alarm;
He for me the path of peace is seeking,
And the voice of love is speaking,
While he safely guards me all the way.

If the Saviour journey with me,
If his guiding hand he give me,
If his loving heart receive me,
I will love and trust him all the way.

2 If the Saviour journey with me,
If he be my faithful friend,
If he never cease to love me,
Love and keep me to the end;
I will seek his face, I will plead His grace,
Trust my life to him who ever liveth,
Give my all to him who giveth
Love divine, that naught can e’er transcend. [Refrain]

3 If the Saviour journey with me,
If he keep me at his side,
If he shield me from the dangers,
That along my path may hide;
I will never stray from the perfect way,
Till at last I stand within the portal
Of the dwelling-place immortal,
Where the blest of God shall e’er abide. [Refrain]
