1 In the day when shadows deepen
O’er the pathway which I tread,
I shall know my Lord is near me,
With his love around me spread;
I shall feel his touch most tender
On my brow, and hear him say:—
“Do not fear, my child, I love thee,
I am with thee all the way.”

Jesus will be with me,—why should I fear?
Dangers cannot reach me while he is near;
Praise his name forever, he is my friend!
Yes, Jesus will be with me unto the end.

2 When I enter that dark valley,
Where no friend can go with me;
When I hear the breakers beating
From the vaster eternity;
Just to know that thou art with me,
Jesus, Master of the sea,
With thy tender smile of welcome,
Will my joy forever be. [Refrain]

3 As I reach the golden harbor,
And the darkness flees away,
Heaven’s angels there will bid me
Welcome to eternal day;
Earthly sorrows all forgotten,
Trials, sin, and darkness o’er,
With the children’s voices singing
Heaven’s joys forevermore. [Refrain]

4 When I stand in that fair city,
With the dear ones who are there,
And receive my crown of beauty,
May my Lord its glory share;
For ‘twas he, in old Judea,
Suffered death and cruel shame;
Then let heaven sing his glory,
And the angels praise his name! [Refrain]
