1 In the journey of life, with its struggle and strife,
And the perils that meet and o’ertake us,
We must trust and not fear, for the Saviour is near,
Who has pledg’d himself ne’er to forsake us.

Then despite ev’ry foe, let us cheerfully go,
Wherever our Saviour may need us;
He’ll protect us thro’ life, and when ended the strife,
To the mansions above he will lead us.

2 Tho’ the pathway be rough, and our strength not enough
For the journey that still lies before us,
We shall yet reach the end, for we’ve Christ for a Friend,
And a Father in heav’n to watch o’er us. [Refrain]

3 In the night, as the day, Christ our Guide knows the way,
By the hand he securely will hold us;
And when dangers affright, will defend with his might,
Or within his strong arms will enfold us. [Refrain]

4 When the journey is done, and the goal has been won,
And our Home has been reach’d to leave never;
Then with new pow’rs endued, and with old pow’rs renewed,
We will serve thee, blest Saviour, forever. [Refrain]
