1. Joy in my sadness, hope in my tears;
Now let Thy presence banish all my fears.
Lo, I am waiting, here at Thy throne;
O my Redeemer, leave me not alone.

Wherever I may go, wherever I may be,
Thou in whom I trust, O still abide with me;
Keep this heart of mine and hide my life with Thine,
That I may gather with the faithful.

2. Come when the morning breaks on my sight;
Come in the noontide, lovely, calm and bright;
Come when the day-beams gently have flown;
O my Redeemer, leave me not alone. [Refrain]

3. Star of the weary, rise on my way;
Where Thou art leading, joyful I obey.
When, o’er life’s ocean, storm billows foam,
O my Redeemer, safely bear me home. [Refrain]
