Representative Text

1 Jesus is always at hand,
My footsteps to guide in the way;
He helps me in sadness,
He fills me with gladness,
His word is my comfort and stay.

Jesus is always at hand,
By faith in His merits I stand;
O the riches of grace I behold in His face,
For Jesus is always at hand.

2 Jesus is always at hand,
To help me life’s burdens to bear;
His love is my treasure,
His service my pleasure,
How sweet His protection to share. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is always at hand,
When sorrow would darken my soul;
His crimson oblation
Brings sweet consolation,
And makes my poor wounded heart whole. [Refrain]

4 Jesus is always at hand,
Till homeward my soul takes its flight;
He’ll guide me to glory,
Where love’s sweetest story
I’ll sing in the mansions of light. [Refrain]
