Representative Text

1 O Christian trav’ler, fear no more
The storms which round thee spread;
Nor yet the noontide’s sultry beams
On thy defenceless head.

“Fear thou not, for I am with thee:
Be not dismayed, for I am thy God!
Fear thou not, for I am with thee;
Be not dismayed, for I am thy God!”

2 Thy Saviour, who upon the cross
Thy full redemption paid,
Will not from thee, His ransomed one,
Withhold His promised aid. [Refrain]

3 A safe retreat and hiding place
Thy Saviour will provide;
And sorrow cannot fill thy heart,
While sheltered at His side. [Refrain]

4 No; in thy darkest days on earth,
When ev’ry joy seems flown,
Believer, thou shalt never tread
The toilsome way alone! [Refrain]
