Representative Text

1 O sing the Savior’s worthy praise,
A very present help is Jesus,
He is so kind in all His ways,
A very present help is Jesus.

Refrain:
He is my song along the way,
He keeps me safely day by day,
And knowing this I well can say,
A very present help is Jesus!

2 By day my strength, by night repose,
A very present help is Jesus,
My need no other like Him knows,
A very present help is Jesus. [Refrain]

3 My peace, my comfort in my grief,
A very present help is Jesus,
When heavy laden, my relief,
A very present help is Jesus. [Refrain]

4 My hope of happy days to come,
A very present help is Jesus,
My refuge, my eternal home,
A very present help is Jesus. [Refrain]
